Military families relocate almost every three years. Many military children have already flown on a plane before they walk, and they often get their passport before their driver’s license. Their hometown isn’t on the map—it is the map. As students, these children may attend 6 – 9 schools before they graduate high school.

Commander Navy Installations Command (CNIC) established Child & Youth Education Services (CYES) Navy-wide to address the education needs of military families that come with frequent transitions and extended deployments. CYES is a function of Child & Youth Programs (CYP) under Morale, Welfare and Recreation (MWR). The Navy School Liaison Officer (SLO) is responsible for implementing all aspects of CYES and School-Based Programming.
CYES Mission
CYES helps connect military families to their command, school, community, and future. The mission of Navy CYES School-Based Programming is to cultivate an environment supportive of transitioning families, school preparedness, and military mission readiness. School-Based Programming is a collaborative effort to facilitate the transition and orientation experiences that address the needs of mobile students and provides support during deployments while promoting academic achievement and successful social and emotional adjustment at school.
Commander CYES Program
The SLO is the face of the command to the educational community and the face of the educational community to the command. The SLO serves as the primary liaison for community schools, commanders, and military parents and wears many hats: advisor, communicator, advocate, and coordinator. The SLO has four primary customers - commanders, educators, parents, and community partners – and serves as the subject matter expert and point of contact to each.

School Transition Services
Assist families with school transfers and help ‘level the playing field’ for military children and youth.

Deployment Support
Connect educators with Navy deployment support system to inform them about cycles of deployment and tools available to assist in working with Navy children.
Command, School, Community Communications
Serve as subject matter experts for installation commanders on K-12 issues, helping to connect command, school and community resources.

Partnerships in Education (PIE)
Creates volunteer network of resources to support installation and community members who have a vested interest in the success of all youth.

Home School Linkage and Support
Assist families by gathering and sharing information on homeschooling issues, policies and legislation and help leverage CYP resources to support these families.

Special Needs System Navigation
Provide information on installation and community programs and services, make referrals to EFMP, and assist in navigating administrative systems within LEAs.

Post Secondary Preparations
Leverage installation and school resources to provide graduating military students with access to post-secondary information and opportunities.

Interstate Compact on Educational Opportunity for Military Children
This interstate compact is a game changer for military families in resolving education transition issues for military children. It assists military students with tangible ways during multiple school-to-school transfers. Articles IV-VII address Enrollment, Placement, Eligibility, and Graduation policies. Every school district in the US has military children and all 50 states have adopted the compact as state law. Each state has an appointed commissioner and council. The District of Columbia and DoDEA are ex officio members.

Military and Family Life Counselor (MFLCs)
What is a Military & Family Life Counselor (MFLC)?
MFLCs help military families through cycles of deployment and reintegration by providing non-medical, short-term counseling. Through a partnership between the school district, the installation and the office of the Deputy Under Secretary of Defense for Military Community and Family Policy, counselors will be assigned to various schools during the school year.
What is the counselor’s role in the school?
CYB-MFLC(s) provide consultation, training, and educational presentations/ workshops to program faculty, staff, parents, and children. CYB-MFLC support augments services already in place at each school. Counselors take part in everyday school activities and events and help with deployment and reintegration; family dynamics; positive coping mechanisms; staff support and education; parent education and stress reduction. Counselors are also available to facilitate groups and training to build leadership skills; manage anger; build self-esteem and confidence and strengthen communication.

Kids Included Together (KIT)
Who We Are:
Kids Included Together (KIT) is a national, registered 501(c)(3) non–profit organization teaching the understanding and practice of inclusion. Our passion is inclusion.

What We Believe:
Disability is a natural part of the human experience. Almost everyone knows someone who has or will have a disability – or will directly experience disability themselves. Viewing disability as a form of diversity rather than a deficiency enables positive outcomes for all children. Each person’s contributions add to the richness of the whole community. Inclusion is ensuring that each person belongs and can meaningfully participate.

What We Do:
KIT provides best practices training to help communities, businesses, and childcare & recreation programs include children with all kinds of disabilities and special needs. We offer a blended–learning approach that combines live, on-site training and online learning and resources.
