Military Family Resources

 

Welcome Military Families

Chillicothe High School extends a special welcome to all of our military and veteran families. We are happy to have you in our community and grateful for your service to our country. Supporting military dependents who attend our schools is of utmost importance to us. Teachers, administrators, and staff throughout our school recognize the special challenges for those who serve in the armed forces and we fully understand that it is the entire family who serves.

Some two million military children have had one or both parents deployed since 2001. Understanding the challenges facing military families -- and the resources available to assist military children -- is essential to meeting their unique educational needs.

 

From transferring records to streamlining course sequencing, along with a support for children whose parents are deployed or on Training Orders, there are steps that Chillicothe High School can take to ensure military children or children of veterans don't encounter roadblocks in achieving their educational goals.

 

I welcome any questions and if I can be of any assistance please give me a call SGT/MS. Andrea Waterbury, District Military Liaison, 702-2287, Ext. 16251 or send email to, andrea.waterbury@ccsd.us
