Fort Drum School Support Services


School Support Services (SSS) provides Army school-aged youth with educational opportunities, resources and information necessary to achieve academic success. A branch of Child and Youth Services (CYS), SSS is home to the School Support Services, where the School Liaison Officer (SLO) helps deliver the best educational resources and information for your children.



We specialize in education transitions, and make sure incoming and exiting Families have information about local schools, graduation requirements, after-school services/programs, youth sponsorship programs and home schooling. We also help parents better understand the education process, school organization and interaction strategies.


How the SLO can help:



·       Build relationships and facilitate communication among Army Families and the local school community

·       Inform and assist parents with school transitions and deployment challenges

·       Establish school and community partnerships

·       Facilitate access to home school resources for parents

·       Provide information about college and other post-secondary opportunities and preparation materials

·       Inform and assist parents on youth education and school issues
