Department of Defense Education Activity (DoDEA) counselors work with classes, small groups, and individual students to develop resiliency through character education, teaching positive coping strategies, and helping children experience the competence that leads to personal confidence.
In addition to the commitment of our teachers, staff, and administrators, DoDEA implements policies to provide extra support to military families. We offer block leave so that families can spend time together during post-deployment reintegration. We use 21st Century educational tools to include deployed parents in high school graduations and parent teacher conferences. We also maintain an ongoing arrangement with Tutor.com so that DoDEA students around the world always have access to free professional tutoring when they need it. Perhaps most importantly, DoDEA schools serve as the heart of the military community. Our schools work closely with other installation organizations and throughout the Department of Defense to support and care for the entire military family during a service member’s deployment. For specific information, be sure to contact your school’s counselor.
