School Liaison (SLO)

SELF SCREENING POLICY FOR CYP FACILITIES AND PROGRAMS CYP requires parents to self-screen their child(ren) / teen(s) prior to attending the program daily using our CYP Enhanced Health Screening Questionnaire. CYPs will post the Enhanced Health Screening Questionnaire to our front doors. Any child/teen that enters the School Age Care Program, Child Development Center and the Youth Center or arrives at a Youth Sports & Fitness activity will be presumed to have completed a self-screening by their parent and a CYP employee will administer a temperature check of the child/teen prior to program participation. As always, CYPs must follow regular exclusion criteria in the event that a child/teen displays illness symptoms while participating in the program. If this occurs, parents are required to pick-up their child/teen as soon as possible. Children/teens and parents are required to adhere to the CDC’s mask policy that all persons age 2 years and older must wear a mask in and around our CYP facilities and programs.

Youth Sponsorship

The Child & Youth Programs (CYP) Youth Sponsorship Program is designed to provide transition support to military children via introduction, program insight, club involvement, and community awareness. Inbound students are able to connect and become familiar with the base’s youth program offerings, make connections with local student Youth Sponsorship Representatives, and to gain insight into the programs they will be involved in once they arrive at the base.

Spanish Schools

You may decide to attend Spanish schools. You must have a rental agreement or assigned base housing before you can apply. Registration is in May every year. The SLO hosts a workshop with the Education Delegates in Puerto and Rota every March to walk you through the process. Any time after May, school options are space available and there is an alternative registration process. Every August the Education Delegates and I host a workshop on how to register and what to expect in the Spanish School system. Appointments can be made with the SLO anytime to walk you through the registration and inform you about this education option. For more information, please visit https://www.smore.com/szfpt

Partnerships in Education (PIE)

Service members are volunteering in local schools by mentoring, reading to classes, assisting with various school events like family fun nights. If your command would like to volunteer in school, contact the School Liaison Officer. The ways to volunteer are endless.

Navy Science, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics (STEM)

STEM development begins with Naval STEM outreach programs at the Pre-K through 12th grade levels, continues through undergraduate and graduate school, supports student advancement into post-doctoral work, and continues through all stages of their STEM professions.

The list of opportunities for high school, undergraduate, graduate, and doctoral students can be found below and by downloading the Naval STEM Opportunities for Students handout.

Special Needs System Navigation

While parents remain the first and primary advocates for the rights and needs of their children with special needs, the School Liaison offers support by providing access to information about programs and services, referring families to special education professionals, and helping families navigate the administrative systems within local education agencies. By providing these services the School Liaison equips parents to make informed decisions about the intervention services and care their children with special needs will and/or should receive.

Information on the EFMP, Legal Support, and STOMP can be found at the links below. Your Installation School Liaison is available to represent you at any level if you need assistance.
