Information for PCSing Families

Transferring to Fort Benning Schools

If you are PCS-ing to Fort Benning, you can be assured we are doing our part in strengthening Fort Benning through excellence in education. To obtain this distinguished honor, the Fort Benning community demonstrated that it is truly one of partnership throughout. The Fort Benning Schools are a very integral part of this partnership. Building futures in a supportive community of learners, we offer a quality education to dependents of military members from prekindergarten through eighth grade. High school students attend local county high schools.

Sponsors of students transferring to Fort Benning Schools are required to provide verification of active duty status, and proof of on-post residency before a child may be registered. Preschool, Pre-Kindergarten, and Kindergarten require a certified birth certificate before registration can be accepted.

Preschool Children ages three and four years with developmental delays, physical disabilities, or speech-language problems may be eligible for special education services. If you have concerns you may contact:

  • Preschoolers: Special Education Office at 706-545-8263
  • Infants and toddlers, ages 0-2: Educational and Developmental Intervention Services at 706-545-3835

If you have additional questions contact us at 706-545-7276.

Transferring from Fort Benning Schools 

If you are PCSing from Ft. Benning Schools to another school district, please notify the school so that your child's records can be sent to your next duty location.

Feedback & Improvement

DoD's Interactive Customer Evaluation (ICE)

The ICE system is a web-based tool that collects feedback on services provided by various organizations throughout the Department of Defense (DoD). It allows customers to submit online comment cards to rate the service providers they have encountered at military installations and related facilities around the world. It is designed to improve customer service by allowing managers to monitor the satisfaction levels of services provided through reports and customer comments.
