Phone: 860-694-3772

The school liaison officer is the primary point of contact between the military installation, the local schools and school districts, transitioning families and the community at large. The Navy school liaison officer (SLO) program helps installation and regional commanders work with state departments and local school districts to foster awareness of the stressors on military families brought about by frequent transitions and extended deployments. These education professionals are on all major Navy installations and serve as linkages between all military families and schools. Parents, educators and community members are encouraged to contact their local school liaison officer with any questions.

The seven core functions of a SLO are:

  • School transition services and permanent change of station (PCS) cycle support.
  • Deployment support.
  • Special education system navigation.
  • Installation, school and community communications.
  • Partnerships in education.
  • Home-school linkage and support.
  • Postsecondary preparation.
  • Home-school linkage and support.
