School Liaison Office

Welcome to the School Liaison Office at Robins Air Force Base. The SLO is the central point of contact for school-related matters between military families with children in grades K-12 and local school administrators. The SLO provides transition assistance regarding education for families moving to Robins and serves as an advocate for the educational needs of our military children.

The Robins School Liaison Officer (SLO) is available to assist military and DoD civilian families with questions or issues concerning K-12 school age children.  The SLO provides our families with information on public, private, homeschool and Georgia Virtual schools.

 

The main goals of the School Liaison Officer are to assist new families transitioning to Robins AFB with K-12 educational issues and develop partnerships with state level educational leaders as well as the local school districts servicing our Robins AFB military students. Together we can ease the transition of the mobile military family prior to arrival at Robins AFB as well as when they prepare to depart for the next duty station. The SLO at Robins Air Force Base is here to help ensure our military students receive the best possible education and achieve academic success regardless of where they attend school.

 

School Liaison Services Include:

 

 

  • Assist parents in locating schools in the local area. It is highly recommended that inbound families contact the School Liaison prior to arriving at Robins AFB to discuss school zoning as Houston County School District does NOT offer school of choice.  The district requires that students attend school in the zone in which they reside. However, the Georgia Legislature approved House Bill 224 (HB 224) which allows military families the option to request any school within the district based on space availability, if the family resides on base or in off-base military housing.  Approval is NOT guaranteed, but the school district does their best to support our military families. Families are encouraged to list their top 3 school choices on the transfer request. Please see HB 224 School Transfer guidelines at:
