Welcome to the Carlisle Area!
School Liaison Services provides access to a wide range of resources to facilitate smooth transitions for school-aged students from one installation to another. The School Liaison Officer (SLO) serves as a conduit of school information and is the primary point of contact for public and private school matters.
There are many private and public schools in the area. Your home address will determine the school your child will be assigned to for the upcoming school year. Your landlord should be able to tell you what school serves the students living at your home address.
All schools in the local area offer English as a Second Language (ESL) classes. These classes are very beneficial to new students who are learning to speak the English language. Teachers who are trained in teaching English are responsible for addressing the needs of these students. They work very hard to help international students learn English and adjust to our culture.

Required Information for New Student Registration
Local public school districts require basically the same information from the parents in order to register their child for school. Please make sure all your child’s records are translated into English, so that the registrar is able to understand any information presented for enrolling your child for school.
The following information is required in order to register your child for school in the local public schools:
Parents / legal guardians of students may be asked to sign an affidavit stating that they are truly the primary custodial parents / guardians of the student being enrolled for school.
If you have any questions, please contact your School Liaison Officer:
