NAS Whiting Field Community
School Liaison Officer
The School Liaison Officer (SLO) serves as the communications link between military families with school-aged children, the command and local school districts. As the “point person” for educational issues, the SLO is here to assist military families in addressing school-related issues. Whether you are part of the Navy or some other branch of service, active duty or reservist, living on base or in the community, the SLO is here to ensure that your child has access to the full range of services available in the local public schools. In addition to providing information about local public schools, the SLO also works to assist families who choose educational alternatives such as homeschool, private or parochial schools, independent study or online programs. The local school district has worked diligently to assist military families as they transfer to this area. Most of your questions can be answered by local school administrators and/or office staff. Please see www.navymwrwhitingfield.com/child-youth/school-liaison-officer to find local schools links to assist you in making important decisions about your child’s education. However, should you find that the information does not address an issue that is specific to your family, please do not hesitate to contact your SLO for assistance at 850-665-6105, 7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday.
