Welcome to School Support Services!!
Welcome to School Support Services at the United States Army Garrison Fort Polk--Joint Readiness Training Center (JRTC). The Fort Polk military installation receives school services from both the Vernon Parish and the Beauregard Parish School Districts. The majority of our students, however, attend schools in the Vernon Parish School District (VPSD).
The Vernon Parish School System is quite unique within the state of Louisiana. The system serves about 10,000 students of various social economic classes, races, ethnic groups and special needs children. The Vernon Parish School System provides services to approximately 3500 military dependent students.
All schools within the VPSD are well above Louisiana state averages in student performance indicators and the district is currently ranked 4th out of 72 districts in the state academically. The VPSD motto is "Every Child Every Day Whatever It Takes".
School Support Services brings schools, parents and the command together in meeting the educational needs of the military student. CYS School Support Services:
