School Liaison

School Liaison Program

Hello and welcome to the beautiful Desert Southwest Region of the United States!  During your assignment at MCAS Yuma, the School Liaison program is here to facilitate a smooth transition for your school aged children.  Yuma has an Open Enrollment educational system as well as many educational options available to our military families.  The School Liaison can help you navigate the educational system in order to make the best school choices for your children.

USMC School Liaison Mission:

  • Identify and coordinate community resources to reduce the impact of the mobile lifestyle on military school-age children and families
  • Implement predictable support services that assist children/youth with relocations, life transitions, and achieving academic success
  • Provide a wide range of resources that facilitate school transitions for parents, student, schools, commanders, and communities.
