The School Liaison Program (SLP) focuses its efforts on making transitions for military school age children easier. Through connections with families, schools, commanders, community and installation programs, School Liaisons engage in a system of support on behalf of the military child.

The School Liaison Program works collaboratively with the Command, Child, Youth & Teen Programs, Marine Corps Family Team Building, Exceptional Family Member Program, and the base schools to address educational issues involving military children (K-12). The School Liaison is a communication link between the installation and school personnel like principals and teachers.

We provide parents with information to ensure a child has a smooth educational transition to and from MCAS Iwakuni. We can provide parents with all the resources and information to help them be their child’s best advocate. We also collaborate with educators and provide information and workshops on military-connected students’ needs.

School Lunch meals are not free for the 2023-24 school year. All Parents and Guardians are encouraged to apply for the free and reduced lunch program and open a school lunch account. Submit your application to the MCX Cash Cage or the School Lunch Program email:
