The Secondary Math Pathways recommendations may include a proposal to combine Algebra 1, Geometry, and Algebra 2 - as well as Statistics - into an integrated math course.

The School Liaison works to connect commanders, educators and parents and serves as the subject matter experts for K-12 education issues. The School Liaison can provide numerous resources to assist families, educators, and commands in their efforts to create positive and supportive educational environments for military children.
