EDUCATION

FOR THE CHILDREN
To be enrolled in an Eastern Sierra Unified School District, a child must be 5 years old on or before September 1. Check with the school for other requirements.

 

School liaisons provide a thread of continuity between different Marine Corps duty stations. If you’re expecting orders, the school liaison at your next assignment can provide information on local schools and area services.

 

The mission is to provide parents, students, and educators with timely and relevant information that will enhance learning and promote academic success. Working with school sites, community partners, civic organizations, and all branches of the military, school liaisons help ease the many unique challenges that face military students throughout their academic careers.

 

For more information about the school liaison program, contact us at (760) 590-3015.
