DoDEA is a field activity of the Office of the Secretary of Defense. It is headed by a Director who oversees all agency functions from DoDEA headquarters in Alexandria, Virginia. DoDEA's schools are divided into 3 geographic areas: Each area is managed by an area director. Within each of these three areas, schools are organized into districts headed by superintendents.
Students who enroll in Department of Defense Education Activity (DoDEA) schools are required to meet specific immunization requirements. Parents, guardians, or sponsors should maintain their child’s immunizations in accordance with the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP). Immunization compliance is a condition of attendance in the DoDEA system.
A great deal of planning and coordination is involved in operating DoDEA's worldwide student transportation system. In addition to providing daily commuting services, DoDEA also provides transportation support for students traveling to and from curricular and co-curricular activities, after-school activities and clubs, sports practices and events, and other special school events. DoDEA provides special needs students with dedicated transportation services that are supported with trained safety aides on board every school transportation vehicle.
To the maximum extent possible, DoDEA schools participate in available DoD Student Meal Programs. Qualified child nutrition professionals provide students with access to a variety of affordable, nutritious, and appealing foods that meet the health and nutrition needs of students and accommodate religious, ethnic, and cultural diversity of the student body in meal planning and provides clean, safe, and pleasant settings and adequate time for students to eat.
CurriculumThe DoDEA instructional program provides a comprehensive prekindergarten through 12th grade curriculum that is dedicated to attaining highest student achievement for all students.
Accreditation is the act of granting credit or recognition (especially with respect to educational institution that maintains suitable standards). Currently 100% of DoDEA schools are accredited and in good standing with their regional accrediting agency.
