Military Families

 
 
Welcome Military Families to Colton Middle School. 
The Department of Defense has provided a Military Family Life Counselor at Walter Colton Middle School. We are so excited to be able to offer our military families and students social emotional support that is targeted to support issues that military families face like transitioning to a new place and making friends...
 
...In addition to engaging kids in fun activities to help them feel more comfortable at our school, the school MFLC is able to provide brief, solution-focused, non-medical counseling to active military and their families. The school MFLC is a licensed clinician. Interactions with your child and/or family are kept in strictest confidence. No records are kept. If you are interested in learning more about the program, call 831-383-8378.

 

WHAT IS A SCHOOL LIAISON AND HOW CAN THEY HELP ME?

 

  • The School Liaison Officer is a bridge between parents, educators and the command to help military-connected families and children experience a seamless transition during transfers between schools. 
  • School Liaison Officers provide information about educational options, home schooling and local schools, assist families with inbound/outbound school transfers, help navigate the special education process and administrative systems within local education agencies.
  • SLO’s provide resources for college readiness, deployment support, and connection with community resources.
  • SLOs are the liaison between command, schools and military families, and can link you up with a SLO in your next duty station.
