The Center for Safe Schools presents: Military Kids!

First Tuesdays online training series.

Children of parents who are deployed with the military or living at home with veterans experience a range of needs that are not addressed in the traditional school setting.

The presentation will address:

1) The prevalence of military families and the unique needs of their children in Pennsylvania;

2) A first hand perspective of the deployment cycle.

3) What a School Liaison Officer is and how to obtain their services when not living on a military base.
