School Support Services provides Army school-aged youth with educational opportunities, resources and information necessary to achieve academic success. A branch of Child & Youth Services (CYS), School Support Services features School Liaison Officers (SLOs), who help schools, installations and Families work together for student achievement.

SLOs are your best support in the area of education, schools and military transitions. SLOs are knowledgeable in current education news and policies. They act as the conduit between the school community – including local public school districts, private schools and home school Families – and the installation.

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

When Do I Need a SLO?

Getting ready to move:

  • Information about your upcoming duty station and educational options in your new community
  • Connection to a youth sponsor who can answer your child’s questions from a youth’s perspective
  • Assistance with the steps to prepare for your children’s departure from their current schools

Once you arrive:

  • Assistance with school registration and transition
  • Help with questions about compliance and solutions regarding the Interstate Compact on Educational Opportunity for Military Children
  • Two way communication between the school and parent
  • Connection with homeschool co-ops or support groups

During your assignment:

  • Answers to your questions about schools, homeschooling, special education, scholarships, transitions, and more.
  • Parent education opportunities about college and career readiness, preparing for the transition, and the Interstate Compact

To ease the transition, contact your SLO as soon as you get orders.

Finding a School

Finding a new school and registering your child can be confusing.

We can help. Our SLOs give you information on local schools so you can find the best fit for you and your family.   They can also help you with everything you need to register – and can answer other questions, too. Contact our office and to get more detailed information.

Research-based Characteristics of Quality Schools 

Most schools share fundamental characteristics that prepare students for the future. Research shows that the most effective schools are more alike than they are different. Here is some information about what to look for in quality schools:

Schools Council Meeting (SCM)

Schools Council (SC)

Working Group Created Resources

The Schools Council Meeting provides an opportunity for local schools and the military community to work together.  The SCM involves a variety of stakeholders to share education related information and listen to concerns expressed by parents of military-connected students.  This team will also enhance the ability of Fort Hood leaders and the Independent School District (ISD) administrators to make informed decisions related to issues of concern for military Families.

The Schools Council will also serve to promote quality educational environments for all students.  The meeting is chaired by the Garrison Commander and co-chaired by the DFMWR Director or Deputy Director.  It provides an opportunity for all Soldiers, regardless of rank, both active duty and retired, living on or off post, civilian employees, and Family members, to raise issues and concerns.  Once identified, issues are forwarded to the Schools Council Working Groups to develop solutions.  Outcomes from the Working Groups are shared with the Partners in Education Process Action Team (PIE PAT) and with all surrounding ISDs.

The SCM is comprised of unit representatives, school district representatives (Superintendent, Executive Officer, Deputy or Assistant Superintendent), School Liaison Officers (SLOs), and subject matter experts (SMEs).

This meeting is open to the public.
