Military School Liaison Officers

  • The School Liaison Program is designed to create connectivity between military parents, schools, educators, and the installation by providing timely and relevant information to enhance learning and promote academic success. 

    School Liaisons network, educate, and work in partnership with local schools to enhance the school-age education experience.  The School Liaison provides military commanders with the support necessary to coordinate and advise military families of school-age children on educational issues and needs, and to assist in solving education related problems. 

    Please connect with the School Liaison Officer for your facility, who will be happy to assist your family.
