Soldiers are briefed on Child, Youth & School Services (CYSS) as part of their in-processing with the Fort Hood Reception Detachment.

Soldiers with children/youth (infant to age 18) will in-process through CYSS School Liaison Services (SLS) for an explanation of childcare options, educational options, services of the School Liaison Officers (SLOs), as well as other services provided through CYSS.

Out-processing:
Soldiers with children (infant to age 18) will out-process through Child, Youth & School (CYSS) School Liaison Services (SLS) for an explanation of services available to ease the childcare/educational transition, transferring of CYSS records, and School Liaison Officer (SLO) contact information for the gaining installation.

Soldiers withdrawing children from local schools on Fort Hood and in the greater Fort Hood area must provide the SLS office with a completed withdrawal form for each child. Withdrawal forms are included with clearing papers, and also available on this webpage. Proper withdrawal ensures that school accounts are cleared, informs the current school to prepare the child’s cumulative record, and ensures that the receiving school can begin new enrollment.

FAQs Fort Hood
Where does my child attend school?
Your child(ren) will attend schools in the district in which they are zoned. If you live on-post, in Killeen, Harker Heights, or Nolanville your child will attend school in the Killeen Independent School District.

Can my child attend on-post schools if we live off-post?
Maybe; if you live off-post but wish for your child to attend an elementary or middle school on-post you must request a military post transfer from Killeen Independent School Districtís (KISD) Student Services office. Once completed, KISD will make a determination on whether they can, or cannot, grant a transfer. If the transfer is approved, the parent is responsible for transportation and the requirements of the transfer.

There is no high school on Fort Hood, where will my teenager attend high school?
Any high school age student residing within Patton Park, Pershing Park, McNair, Venable, Wainwright, or Walker Villages will attend Killeen High School. Additionally, any 9-11th grader residing within any of the Comanche Villages will attend Killeen High School. All 12th graders residing within any of the Comanche Villages will attend Shoemaker High School. Furthermore, if you live in Kouma, Liberty, or Montague Village your teenager will attend Shoemaker High School.

What day does school start/end?
School Districts determine their academic calendars individually. Please see our webpage for additional information and links.

At what age can my child start school?
If the military connected child reaches the age of 4 by September 1st of the year he/she is presented for enrollment, the child is eligible to enroll for Pre-Kindergarten in most surrounding School Districts. If you reside within the Copperas Cove Independent School District and the military connected child reaches the age of 3 by September 1st of the year he/she is presented for enrollment, the child is eligible for Pre-Kindergarten. For additional information/requirements please contact your School District.

Can I enroll my child into school if they do not meet the state age requirements?
The age requirement, or mandate, is not set by the local district; rather it is set by the state educational governing body, the Texas Education Agency (TEA). However, if your child has begun that grade in a different state it is possible that the child may be eligible. Contact your School District for further details.

I am moving to the area. How do I enroll my child in school?
Enrollment is handled at the local level. You will register at the school in which you are zoned. Some school districts provide a mass enrollment opportunity during the summer; please see your respective school district’s website for more information.

Where can I find more information about private or home schooling?
The Texas Education Agency does not oversee private or home schooling. For more information please visit http://ritter.tea.state.tx.us/home.school/
Additional home schooling information can also be obtained at www.thsc.org and www.hslda.org.

How can School Support Services assist me in choosing a school?
School Support Services can provide guidance on how to select a school. However, because educational success depends on a myriad of factors, such as the needs of the child, academic goals, extra-curricular interests and housing decisions, it is not possible for School Support Services to recommend a “best” school.
