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 acts as a communication link between the installation and school personnel including principals and teachers.
We provide parents with information to ensure that a child has a smooth educational transition to and from MCAS Iwakuni. We can provide parents with a variety of resources and information in order 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 2022-23 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 to the School Lunch Program email: firstname.lastname@example.org
The elementary, middle, and high schools are operated by the Department of Defense Education Activity (DoDEA).
