School Liaison Officer Welcome
Welcome to the start of a new school year. If you’re new to the area, congratulations and welcome to Hampton Roads, home to more military families than anywhere else in the world. This area boasts over 68,000 military children from all branches of the service: Army, Air Force, Navy, Marine, and Coast Guard.
Hampton Roads is a superb place for families. In addition to great amenities and recreational facilities found on each installation, our location offers unlimited points of interest in the surrounding communities with local schools committed to providing a quality education for our families. As your School Liaison Officer, my role is to improve transitional support for school children of military personnel by establishing partnerships between the base and local schools, advocating for military children, increasing awareness of the unique needs of military children, and providing a process to address and resolve military specific issues affecting students in kindergarten through 12th grade.
There are two school systems serving Langley AFB. Main base housing residents attend Hampton City Schools, with 36 schools and approximately 23,000 students. For main base there are one elementary, one middle, and one high school serving as primary feeder schools. The nearby Bethel Manor housing area residents attend York County Schools, with 19 schools and approximately 13,000 students. Bethel Manor residents are serviced by two elementary, two middle and two high schools, depending on where you live in Bethel Manor.
There is one school system serving families who live on Fort Eustis--Newport News Public Schools, with 45 schools and approximately 33,000 students. General Stanford Elementary is located on Fort Eustis with a student population of approximately 600. Reservoir Middle School with approximately 550 students, and Woodside High School with approximately 2000 students, are located not far from the installation.
There are many opportunities to expand educational opportunities by applying to a Magnet school to further challenge the talents of your children—we encourage you to explore your options. For those living off the installation, there are opportunities for families to attend schools in nearby cities. There is also an extensive listing of private schools in the area for you to choose from.
We have a superb relationship with the school districts. Our commitment as a member of the surrounding school districts/communities is very strong—we will need your help to continue to expand this relationship to help improve our schools. Please consider volunteering in your children’s schools. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the School directly. Once again, welcome to Hampton Roads!

School/Bus Locator Your address determines which elementary, middle, or high school your child will attend. You may locate your child’s school by going to the school district website, clicking on school zone finder, and entering your address; or you may call the school district office. School district website addresses can be found at the end of this booklet.
All bus stops are based on student addresses provided by each school. If you do not find a bus stop, the district may not have the correct address. Contact your school to be sure they have the correct address on file including any day care addresses. If the address is incorrect, call your school district office.
Delayed Openings – Early Closure The Superintendent of each school district makes the decision to close schools. After receiving information and recommendations from the Director of School Transportation, and considering the time and severity of the inclement weather, the Superintendent makes a decision no later than 0600 for schools to close, delay opening for 2 hours, or to open under regular schedule.
Hampton: Delayed opening decisions will be aired on cable channel 46, other television stations, posted on the school district website, and recorded on the HCS Infoline, 727-6789.
York County: Decisions will be aired on York County School Division (YCSD) TV, Channel 47, and other television stations. Messages will be recorded on 898-0300 or 898-0391 after 0600.

Parent Teacher Student Association (PTSA): You are encouraged to become active in your schools. All schools have PTSAs; contact your child’s school to determine time/location:
Impact Aid: The mission of the Impact Aid Program is to disburse Impact Aid payments to local educational agencies that are financially burdened by federal activities and to provide technical assistance and support services to staff and other interested parties. At the beginning of each school year, your child’s school will send home a federal survey card to be completed by a parent or guardian. Please complete and return this form. Since 1950, Congress has provided financial assistance to local school districts through the Impact Aid Program. Impact Aid was designed to assist local school districts that have lost property tax revenue due to the presence of tax-exempt Federal property, or that have experienced increased expenditures due to the enrollment of federally connected children.
Magnet Schools A Magnet Program is a specialized program in selected elementary, middle and high schools that focus on a particular discipline and requires participation in specialized courses, as an enhancement to the essential comprehensive curriculum. Magnet Programs include: Math, Science, Technology, Communications, Fine Arts and others. Students typically must apply to attend, and admission is not guaranteed.
Standards Of Learning (SOL) Testing:
Virginia requires the mandated Standards of Learning (SOL) Tests, which VA developed to measure student progress, and to meet requirements of the No Child Left Behind Act. SOLs emphasize the importance of instruction in four core subjects: English, Math, Science, and History. All students, including Transfer Students, are required to take these tests in grades 3, 5, 8, and throughout High School. In High School, the number of tests required is determined by the kind of diploma (Advanced, Standard, and Modified). Beginning with the graduating class of 2003-2004, a student must pass a specific number of SOL tests in order to receive a VA Diploma.
The Virginia Board of Education will accept content-based high school end of course tests administered as a part of another state’s accountability system for the purpose of awarding verified credit to students who transfer to Virginia public schools. When students transfer to a Virginia public school from a state that requires such high school end-of-course tests, the local school division may automatically accept the student’s passing score on the test and the corresponding course for the purpose of awarding verified credit.
You may view your school’s SOL tests results by visiting the School district or individual school website. Website addresses are at Appendix A. Also, the VA Department of Education website provides a “School Report Card” for each school in VA which includes information on SOL test results. Visit their website at www.pen.k12.va.us/VDOE/src to view results for your school. You may also download “A Parent’s Guide to Virginia’s Standards of Learning Program” from this website.
Special Education The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) and Virginia’s special education law require all schools to ensure that all identified children with disabilities have the right to a free, appropriate public education. Special Education and related services are provided at no cost to identified disabled students, ages 2-21. Services are available at each school for the diagnosis and remediation of learning difficulties. Begin the evaluation process with your zoned/base school. The majority of students eligible for special education services receive them in their base school. Students in need of more intensive services may receive them in a program outside the base school. First, contact your school principal; the Director of Special Education/Student Services, or the Special Education Advisory Committee are also good resources for additional information and referral procedures.

Home Schooling Parents may elect to participate in Home Instruction in a number of ways. All parents using either of the options below must complete and submit a Notice of Intent to Provide Home Instruction. Contact your school District office for appropriate forms; the Virginia Department of Education website also includes home instruction information for parents, available for download at the following website: http://www.pen.k12.va.us/VDOE/Parents/homeinstr.pdf
The Home Instruction Program options available to parents are:
The teaching parent holds a baccalaureate degree from an accredited institution. The parent may be asked to submit a program of study or curriculum with the notice of intent.
Meet the qualifications for a teacher prescribed by the Board of Education. The parent may also be asked to submit a program of study or curriculum with the notice of intent.
Enroll the child or children in a correspondence course approved by the Superintendent of Public Instruction. Evidence of enrollment must be submitted with notice of intent.
Provide a program of study or curriculum which, in the judgment of the Division Superintendent, includes the Standards of Learning objectives adopted by the Board of Education for Language Arts (English) and Math and provide evidence that the parent is able to provide an adequate education for the child.

All students, including Transfer Students, are required to take these tests in grades 3, 5, 8, and throughout High School.
