School Liaison Officer for Washington, DC: [email protected], (202-404-1014)
Army, Navy, Air Force and Marine Corps School Liaison Officers (SLOs) connect military families with educational opportunities and critical information about state and local school laws, policies and standards. School liaison officers work in partnership with local school divisions and the leaders of military commands and installations to enhance the public-school experiences of military children. SLOs equip school division staff with resources and information about the challenges faced by military children while working in partnership with schools and community organizations to raise awareness about the needs of these students. SLOs promote parental involvement and assist parents, teachers and administrators and commanders in troubleshooting and finding solutions to education-related problems.
Aside from the other resources provided on this page, the School Liaison Officer is a helpful person to contact before, during, and after a Permanent Change of Station (PCS).
