Transition Planning

  • School Liaison Officer
    • The School Liaison Officer serves as the primary link between schools, commanders and military parents in K-12 academic matters. The job of the SLO is to inform and connect military families to the resources and information needed to maximize educational opportunities for their children. School liaisons provide assistance as needed in school enrollment and in-/out-processing and educate parents on how to be the best advocates for their children. School liaisons inform local school officials of base programs, policies and activities. They prepare news releases and write articles for installation newspapers to help educate the base population regarding available resources and school programs and policies. They work with the installation’s public affairs office and with other MWR venues to plan and coordinate installation tours and other engagements for school administrators, teachers and students. For support with school-related issues, please call 601-679-2473.

  • Military Interstate Compact- MIC3
    • The Council of State Governments (CSG), in cooperation with the US Department of Defense, drafted this Interstate Compact to address some of the educational challenges transitioning children of military families face. The Compact addresses key educational transition issues encountered by military families including enrollment, placement, attendance, eligibility and graduation. In addition, the Compact provides for a detailed governance structure at both the state and national levels with built-in enforcement and compliance mechanisms.
