With each move, military children face many school-related challenges. The School Liaison Program is the central point of contact for commanders, military families, and local school systems on school-related matters for grades Pre K-12. We are here to help ease the transition from one school to another (before and after a move) and help with navigating the school systems to ensure our military youth are given the opportunity to achieve their highest potential for academic success at any assigned location.
