School Support Services & School Liaison

1900 Reece Road

301-677-1227 or 1177

Monday through Friday 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.

School Support Services & School Liaison works under Child, Youth and School Services partnering with area school communities addressing educational issues involving children of military families.

By partnering with local, state and military communities, the school liaison is able to access a wide variety of resources to provide assistance with issues concerning student transition and educational needs.

The school liaison acts as a link between the installation and the surrounding school districts. School Support Services advocates for military families in a variety of areas within the school system to include home school and special-needs children.

Public Schools

Seven county public schools are located on Fort Meade. The schools are governed by the Anne Arundel County School administration and are not Department of Defense Dependent System schools.

School Buses

Passing a school bus when it is stopped or reducing speed for the purpose of receiving or discharging passengers is prohibited. Vehicles must stop a full 10 feet to the front or rear of the school bus and remain stopped until the bus resumes motion or the flashing red lights are turned off.

Pre-Kindergarten & Kindergarten registration:

Children who live in Maryland and will be 5 years old on or before Sept. 1 are required to attend kindergarten and must register at their assigned school.

The pre-kindergarten program in Anne Arundel County public elementary schools selects 4-year-olds based on economic and education need. If applying due to economic need, proof of family income will be required.

When registering a child for pre-kindergarten or kindergarten, parents must bring the following:

• child’s original birth certificate or birth record

• copy of child’s immunization record

• two proofs of residency (rental agreement, current phone bill, etc.)

• school records (hand-carried records are accepted)

• Social Security card is requested but not required

If applying for pre-kindergarten due to economic need, verification of total combined household income (W-2 and 1040 statements with one current pay stub) is required. If these documents are not available, bring three current paycheck stubs for each person employed as well as documentation relating to any additional source of income (including child support, Temporary Cash Assistance and rental income). For more information, call the school liaison officer at 301-677-1227.
