The CYES School Liaison program provides military children the opportunity to thrive academically, socially and emotionally, regardless of duty station, deployments or transition status. The School Liaison Officer (SLO) is a community facilitator; connecting schools, families, and community services to enhance K-12 educational opportunities for military children. The SLO assists commanders and Total Force families in meeting the challenging demands of the military lifestyle by developing and maintaining partnerships between parents, installation leadership, local schools, Department of Defense Education Activity and International Schools and the community. The hallmark to force retention is the expectation that families are safe and well supported; strong families improve mission readiness.
