GLA’s Military Point of Contact (MPOC) for military family transition:
Ms. Kim Adams Email: Kadams4@ecsdfl.us
Our MPOC is available to assist military families with student enrollment, records transfer, accessing services for students with disabilities, and accessing school- and community-based resources that are available in the district for military students and their families. Ms. Adams will also introduce your child(ren) to our Student Leader for Military Family Transition.
Student Leader for Military Family Transition:
Vinson is ready to be your military child’s first friend and “travel buddy” at Global Learning Academy. He will show your child(ren) around the school and help them to settle in. Current students of military families, like Vinson and other Global Ambassador Students, offer friendship, support, and practical tips on being a successful Global Learning Academy Explorer--with the support of our Guidance Counselor.
