Military Family Resources

Military Family Life Consultant Program (MFLC)

The District is pleased to have the Military Family Life Consultant Program (MFLC) as a part of the supportive network of services that we provide to the students, parents, families, and staff of the District. These services are being provided to the District by the Department of Defense Child and Youth Program. The MFLC program places licensed professional consultants in all of our schools to provide services such as: 

  • Observing, participating, and engaging in activities with children and youth
  • Providing direct interventions in the classroom
  • Modeling behavioral management techniques and providing feedback to staff 
  • Being available to staff to discuss interactions and other concerns
  • Providing outreach to parents 
  • Conducting training for staff and parents

All students, families, and staff are eligible for these services, not just those that are affiliated with the military. These services are being offered due to the unique challenges faced by military families, students, and staff that support our families during this time of war.

The subject areas that the consultants may deal with include but are not limited to the following: communication, resolving conflicts, behavioral management techniques, managing anger, sibling/parental relationships, bullying, deployment and reintegration issues, and self-esteem/self-confidence. The consultant may also work with children in other settings such as on field trips, where he/she is available to talk to the children, facilitate group activities, and be involved in such a way as to enhance the children’s experiences.

The consultants are available beginning September 11th in the District's schools. Here are the consultants assigned to each of the schools and their contact information:
