school liaison office 

The School Liaison Officer (SLO) serves as the primary liaison between Hawaii’s community schools, commanders, and military parents pertaining to K-12 education.  The SLO also implements the K-12 education aspect of the Commander Navy Region Hawaii Strategic Engagement Plan.

The School Liaison Officer provides information to families, organizations, and commands regarding youth educational and transitional issues.  Most military children move up to nine times in their PreK-12th grade years.  Retention of educational goals is a major focus for families when planning to PCS. The School Liaison Officers can offer information on area schools and help facilitate communication between the military family on matters relating to public and private schools as well as home schooling.


The JBPHH School Liaison Officer provides SEVEN CORE SERVICES to assist families:


  1. School Transition Services (PCS Cycle): School Liaison Officers assist families with school transfers and help “level the playing field” for military children and youth.
  2. Deployment Support: School Liaison Officers connect educators with the deployment support system to inform them about the cycles of deployment and the tools available to assist educators in working with Navy & Air Force children.
  3. Command, School, Community Communications: School Liaison Officers serve as subject-matter experts for installation commanders on K-12 issues, helping to connect command, school and community resources.
  4. Home School Linkage and Support: School Liaison Officers assist Navy & Air Force families by gathering and sharing information on home schooling issues, policies and legislation from local school districts, and help leverage Navy Child and Youth Programs resources to support these families.
  5. Partnerships in Education (PIE): PIE creates a volunteer network of resources to support installation and community members who have a vested interest in the success of all youth.
  6. Post-Secondary Preparations: School Liaison Officers leverage installation and school resources to provide graduating military students with access to post-secondary information and opportunities.
  7. Special Needs System Navigation: School Liaison Officers provide information about installation and community programs and services, make referrals to the Exceptional Family Member Program, and offer assistance in navigating the administrative systems within local education agencies.


Why School Liaison Officers?
o        Families move an average of every 2.9 years
o        Children attend up to 9 different schools by graduation
o        Families experience increased stress related to deployment during wartime
