Lesson 2: DoDEA Schools

Lesson Overview: DoDEA schools serve eligible military-connected students through two school systems that are governed by Federal law, although the legislative requirements for DoDEA are not the same as those that govern the U.S. Department of Education. However, DoDEA’s rigorous commitment to ensuring student achievement means that important policies and standards for curriculum, assessment, monitoring and reporting, and graduation requirements are in place and specialized programs are offered. School Liaisons need to know about these policies, standards, and programs to help inform eligible families about DoDEA schools.
