The Department of Defense Education Activity, Educational Partnership is proud to offer "Keeping Students at the Center," a resource for school liaison professionals designed to support their role by providing additional information, tools and resources to work effectively with families, schools and communities. The content of the modules will provide school liaisons with additional background on the issues, organizations, and policies that guide their work.

The web-based, online modules were developed in close coordination with the military services. They were designed to supplement the training each Service provides with additional information, tools, and resources. The focus of the online modules is to offer relevant material and helpful information in a format that is engaging, insightful, and thought provoking. The modules include videos, downloadable presentations/briefings, fact sheets and links to relevant websites and resources. the content of the modules include hands-on resources that can be used and manipulated by school liaisons to brief military families, educators and other relevant personnel on critical topics related to the military life and education.

The precursor to Keeping Students at the Center modules is "Students at the Center," an educational resource specifically for military parents, the military community and school leaders. Students at the Center is available online and in print or on a CD through Military OneSource.
