The School Liaison Officer (SLO) serves as the Tinker AFB point-of-contact for all military child education matters. The SLO develops and coordinates proactive partnerships between local schools (public, private, charter, and home schools) to provide information and referral to families with school-age children. The SLO provides services for military families including tailored relocation assistance, support during deployments, and assistance with the overall challenges of a mobile military lifestyle. The SLO also trains and educates local schools on the nuances of military lifestyles by advocating for benefits such as Impact Aid funding and bringing awareness about the Interstate Compact. The ultimate goal of the SLO is to increase quality of life by identifying barriers to the academic success of military-connected children and aid families as well as schools in developing solutions.
