School Support Services

School Support Services

The military life presents unique challenges to students, and School Support Services (a part of Child & Youth Services, or CYS) can help. Through deployments, PCS moves and the other stresses of growing up in a Military Family, we bring parents, schools, and communities together to help our students.

We provide a wide range of programming, including tutoring services, assistance entering a new school, and Adopt-A-School programs – and it’s all focused on the success of our military families and their students.

Our School Liaison Officers (SLOs) work directly with Families, educators, administrators, and military units to smooth transitions and deliver the best resources to military students. Their services are completely free – so reach out and meet your SLO today.

How do they do it? By

  • Helping schools understand the challenges military Families face
  • Informing parents about local school policies
  • Giving Families information about local schools, graduation requirements, after school programs, youth sponsorship and homeschooling
  • Connecting units and schools through partnership initiatives
  • Conducting workshops to help parents navigate educational transition and advocate for their children
  • Providing an array of resources that benefit military youth and improve school experiences
