Lesson 2: Helping Families Manage School Choices

Lesson Overview: School Liaisons need to keep themselves informed and up to date about laws governing school choice and the local options and services available. This lesson arms School Liaisons with the information needed to inform themselves and their military families transferring into an installation location about their school choice options.

Note that School Liaisons can help families understand how schools are performing and assist in providing school data, but are not to advise families on which schools they should enroll their children in. The role of a School Liaison is to provide unbiased information on schools and allow families to interpret and make schooling decisions that will best meet their needs.
