Supporting Transitions for Military Families

To help make your transition easier, Department of Defense (DOD) employees from each branch of service provide a School Liaison Officer (SLO) or a point of contact. School Liaison Officers are the primary point of contact for school-related matters and assist military families with school issues.

Academic Planning

Moving to Fairfax County and Fairfax County Public Schools, you will join one of the nation's premier public school districts. Our academic standards are high, and our programs are rigorous.  For general information on academic programs, visit the Academic Planning for Military Families page. For specific information on Rolling Valleys academic programs, visit our Rolling Valley Academics page.

Interstate Compact on Educational Opportunities for Military Families

Fairfax County Public Schools and the State of Virginia work hard to remove barriers to educational success imposed on children of military families because of frequent moves and deployment of their parents.
