Military Family Support
Enterprise, a progressive City of approximately 22,000, is located in southeast Alabama and is 5 miles west of Fort Rucker, Alabama. Fort Rucker is the U.S. Army Aviation Center of Excellence that trains military, civilian, and international personnel in aviation and leadership skills, integrates Army aviation war fighting doctrine and requirements, and sustains a commitment to the well-being of soldiers and their families. The Enterprise City School System is highly committed to serving those stationed at Fort Rucker, as 39% of our student population is a part of the Fort Rucker family. To that end, we have on staff a Military Family Support Liaison who will assist in transitions and offer support to military dependent students and their families.
It's in the Bag
In an effort to welcome our new military students Enterprise City Schools partnered with Kim Kozel from Fort Rucker. New military students in the Elementary schools are given back packs. These back packs contain school supplies and information pertaining to the school system as well as Fort Rucker. Transitioning to a new location,routine, and school can be challenging. We offer this service to ensure each new military student feels welcome and understands we are here to help to make the transition process a smooth one.
