NAVSTA Norfolk - School Liaison Officer

The School Liaison Officer’s primary function is to serve as a conduit between parents, educators and the command so that military-connected children experience a seamless transition during the transfer between schools.  Knowing that many military children move an average of every 2.9 years, School Liaison Officers can provide families with educational information to assist them as they begin their PCS planning.

The Child and Youth Education Services program supports military families with seven cores services provided by the School Liaison Officer:

  1. School Transition Services (PCS Cycle):  School Liaison Officers assist families with school transfers and help “level the playing field” for military children and youth.
  2. Deployment Support:  School Liaison Officers connect educators with the military deployment support system to inform them about the cycles of deployment and the tools available to assist educators in working with military children.
  3. Command, School, & Community Communications:  School Liaison Officers serve as subject-matter experts for installation commanders on K-12 issues, helping to connect command, school and community resources.
  4. Home School Linkage and Support:  School Liaison Officers assist military families by gathering and sharing information on home schooling issues, policies and legislation from local school districts. They also help leverage military Child and Youth Program resources to support these families.
  5. Partnerships in Education (PIE):  PIE creates a volunteer network of resources to support installation and community members who have a vested interest in the success of all youth.
  6. Post-Secondary Preparations:  School Liaison Officers leverage installation and school resources to provide graduating military students with access to post-secondary information and opportunities.
  7. Special Needs System Navigation:  School Liaison Officers provide information about installation and community programs and services, make referrals to the Exceptional Family Member Program, and offer assistance in navigating the administrative systems within local education agencies.
