School Liaison

The School Liaison Program (SLP) builds community capacity by creating an installation-community network of military families, pre-kindergarten through 12th grade schools, commanders, installation programs and community services. The SLP supports children during transitions related to the mobile-military lifestyle by providing information and assistance to all service members and their families.



  • Serves as the point of contact for all matters related to the education of military-connected students including homeschool and post-secondary education
  • Supplies resources to assist in the transition of military-connected students during relocations
  • Provides information about school options, services, programs, and resources
  • Connects families to military resources and programs on and off-installation
  • Supports parents’ understanding of federal, state, and local education laws and regulations impacting military-connected students
  • Educates families about the unique challenges impacting military-connected students

During PCS and deployment, many military families find making important family decisions overwhelming. The sensitive and caring support of the School Liaison will prove invaluable. By providing educational connections, the School Liaison may be instrumental in relieving some of the pressures felt by families in transition. School Liaisons should have the following information ready to support families:

  • School options, services and programs
  • Registration requirements
  • School Calendar
  • Extracurricular activities and sports
  • Testing requirements
  • Course and graduation requirements
  • Before and after school programs
  • School selection while in temporary housing
  • Transportation

For assistance with relocation, questions about your local schools, or more information about education of military-connected children, contact your local School Liaison by calling or visiting the School Liaison webpage at your installation.

The School Liaison Program is a cross Service collaboration that supports military-connected children. Families will be assisted by the nearest School Liaison regardless of that School Liaison’s service affiliation. For example if you are a Marine family moving to an Army base, contact the School Liaison at that Army base prior to moving.
