School Liaison Program

The School Liaison will be at the Pentagon on Thursdays from 8 am to 4:30 pm at Room 4A524.
Phone: 703-693-5197.


The role of the School Liaison is to support transitioning military families in obtaining educational information and assistance from local school districts.

The mission of the School Liaison is to mobilize and use community resources to reduce the impact of the mobile military life style on military school-age children and families; to implement predictable support services that assist children and youth with relocations, life transitions and achieving academic success; as well as provide a wide range of resources that facilitate school transitions for parents, students, schools, commanders and communities.
