School Liaison/Transition Services focus is to assist family members in being advocates for their children's education and in dealing. with unique problems facing military children (PCS moves, varying school-to-school academic curriculum and schedules, varying graduation and records transfer requirements), and other major issues such as Installation-School-Community Partnerships, and Home Schooling. School Liaison/Transition Services helps connect Families, Schools and Communities.
Child and Youth Services School Transition Specialist (STS) and Installation School Liaison Officers (SLO) improve transitional support for children by establishing partnerships between the schools and communities. advocating for military children, increasing awareness of the unique needs of military children, and providing a process to address and resolve military-specific education issues.
In the Army, the School Liaison Officer works in conjunction with the Child and Youth Services (CYS) and the local school community to address educational issues involving military children. Through partnering with the local and military community, the School Liaison Officer uses a variety of resources to provide assistance with issues concerning student transition. The School Liaison Officer acts as a communication link between the installation and the surrounding schools.
