Resources for Military connected Students and Families
The Comal Independent School District values the many families that live in our community who have ties to the military. As a district, we understand that military youth go through unique circumstances and situations and we want every military family to know we are here to help. This webpage is designed to provide you with easy access links to helpful resources, as well the opportunity for us to personally answer any and all questions you may have.
