Military Families

SWISD welcomes our military families! Our district recognizes the unique strengths and challenges of our military-connected families, and we aim to provide a smooth transition for students and provide support and resources to families throughout the stay in SWISD. Thank you for choosing our district! 


We support military-connected children and families by:

    • Introducing a campus "buddy" through the Student 2 Student program, that helps introduce and supports the military-connected child in school.
    • Providing news and updates for events and activities featuring military students, families, and veterans.
    • Designating resources for students and military families.
    • Hosting Month of the Military Child events and celebrating our Military families through a series of school-wide and district-wide events.
    • Providing priority status in the school’s enrollment process for children of active-duty families.
Thank you for choosing our community. Our aim is to support you and your children, ease into our community and schools. For your convenience, we have collected here resources that you may find valuable.
