MISSION

The mission of the School Liaison Officer (SLO) aboard MCAGCC Twentynine Palms is to coordinate education support services and to maximize opportunities for academic success for transitioning military children/youth. The SLO fosters and promotes quality education for military children by working directly with the command, families, school districts, local communities and by providing referral services to family support agencies aboard the base and in the local community.


The School Liaison Program provides the following services:

  1. Addressing issues with youth registration in the local school system.
  2. Coordinating education transition related resources and points of contracts within school and community.
  3. Collaborating with parents to ensure academic success.
  4. Educating parents on the local school system policies, procedures, programs, and schedules.
  5. Supplying resources materials on primary, secondary and post-secondary education.

School Options

School Options

The School Liaison is the primary link for military families coming to the Marine Corps Air Ground Combat Center to help navigate the educational systems and to provide best educational options for their children.  These educational options consist of the two Local Educational Agencies (Public Education), Private Schools and Home School for families.

Home Schooling

Home Schooling

One of the top priorities of each School Liaison is to provide parents and students with relevant information to promote and enhance their learning success. One of the most important priorities is letting parents know they have school options and access to the choice of programs they would like for their children. In response to providing more educational options, the Marine Corps Community Services Program (MCCS) has coordinated the creation of Homeschool resources for mobile military families who have chosen to homeschool.
