School Liaison Officer- NSB Kings Bay
Get all of your school-based questions answered. The School Liaison Officer (SLO) helps military families transition into the school district and is the primary contact between the military installation and the local schools and school district. Navy SLO personnel understand the difficulty that families face through frequent transitions and extended deployments. Navy SLO education professionals work closely with school administrators to foster a positive and mutually beneficial relationship between schools and the military community, all for the sake of the military child.
Parents and community members with questions on school-age military child education are encouraged to contact their local School Liaison Officer. Education professionals with the Navy SLO program are located on all major installations and serve as the link between Navy families and schools.
KINGS BAY YOUTH CONNECTIONS CLUB
The Connections Club is a support network for military children that provides support and services for all transitioning military youth experiencing relocation-related challenges. The program offers an outlet for military children to express ideas, feelings, and emotions related to the military lifestyle. Children are provided opportunities to participate in academic and character-building mentorship programs as well as foster positive interactions between adults and peers who understand the challenges of transition. The Connections Club promotes academic achievement by reducing the stress and anxiety experienced at all phases of Permanent Change of Station (PCS) by coordinating installation and community resources to foster military family stability.
The design and implementation of the program will reflect the dynamics and needs of the families and youth being served. This program is constantly reviewed to ensure that it meets the current needs of the military youth.
