Mr. Howard Lattimore, CCS Liaison

The Cumberland County Schools (CCS) serves the third largest concentration of military-connected students in the world. The CCS and the local military installations of Ft. Bragg and Pope Air Field, as well as statewide installations, and the North Carolina National Guard and Reserve components have enjoyed a strong history of positive relationships built on service and collaboration. The positive relationship between the CCS and the military helps ensure that student needs are identified and addressed, resulting in high-quality service for these students. The relationship shared between the entities has allowed the CCS to work in a progressive way by thinking forward and helping identify trends and targets that reveal areas of need.

The military family and yourth liaison (MFYL) acts as a communication link between the installation and the school district, in order to ease the transitions for the military students. The MFYL coordinates and supports efforts to: assess needs, build awareness of resources, and connect those with needs to support solutions.
