Military School Liaison

School Liaisons serve as the primary point of contact for preK - 12th grade school-related matters. The School Liaison Program offers an array of services and resources to support students, parents, installation leadership, schools and the surrounding community. They inform parents about local schools, graduation requirements, afterschool programs, and much more. By working together with these stakeholders, the School Liaison Program builds a support network to provide the best possible education experience for military-connected children and youth.

The School Liaisons Program goals are to:

  • Identify barriers to academic success and develop solutions
  • Promote parental involvement and educate local communities regarding the needs of military children
  • Develop and coordinate partnerships in education
  • Provide students and parents with the tools they need to overcome obstacles to education that stem from the military lifestyle

  • Represents, informs, and assists students and parents supporting enrollment processes, records transfer, community resources, and student support services
