What are the School Registration procedures?
Inform your school district and school site of your upcoming arrival. Registrars and front desk staff will advise on the process. Some sites have online registration options. Expect to fill out Registration Forms and provide birth certificate and immunization copies. Also provide proof of residency or mention that you are awaiting on-base housing (which will require later verification). It is recommended to send copies of IEP/504 documents at the time of registration.
What do I do if I’m on a housing wait-list or am in temporary housing?
Most military housing areas, and school districts within school boundaries of military housing are familiar with this situation. We recommend that you ask your local housing office for a letter indicating that you are on the waitlist, and list the potential waitlist timeline. Most times this is all the schools need to proceed with registration. If you have questions or issues, please contact your School Liaison.

What do I do if I’m moving with a child with special needs?
You School Liaison can help you with the special needs navigation of the school or district that you are planning to send your child(ren) to. If you are Active Duty, you should also contact the Exceptional Family Member Program (EFMP) to ensure that you are enrolled and that you have all information and resources that they offer. This should be done before you PCS and after you PCS.
Can School Liaisons advocate in an IEP/504 meeting for my child?
The Navy School Liaisons are not able to advocate on your behalf nor are they able to attend the meetings. School Liaisons offer information and resources. They can also help you find the right people to talk to at the school or district. If you ever have issues with your IEP/504 or school, please call your School Liaison since they also have many community resources that can offer guidance and direct assistance.
