School Liaison Program Manager Role
The education and welfare of school-age children is a quality-of-life issue. Military families experience challenges with reciprocity and quality of education from location to location. School-age children are as transient as their military parents and may encounter transition and academic challenges.
The School Liaison is the central point of contact for commanders, military families, and local school systems on school-related matters. SLs network, educate, and work in partnership with local schools to address or enhance the military child's education. The SL assists commanders and Total Force families in meeting the challenging demands of the military lifestyle by developing and maintaining partnerships between parents, installation leadership, local schools, including home schools, private schools, charter schools, virtual schools, Department of Defense Education Activity and International Schools and the community. The hallmark to force retention is the expectation that families are safe and well supported. Strong families improve mission readiness. The School Liaison Program provides military children the opportunity to thrive academically, socially and emotionally, regardless of duty station, deployments or transition status.
The School Liaison is committed to outreach, advocacy, and partnership initiatives that generate real-time solutions for military-connected students in grades Pre-Kindergarten through grade 12 as they face global educational challenges and transitions.
To deliver unparalleled educational advocacy, outreach, and partnerships for military-connected students around the globe!
