Being a DoDEA Americas school board member is a serious responsibility but one that offers significant rewards - the primary reward being the opportunity to actively participate in the process of educating our children.
However, unlike the school boards in the Local Education Authority (LEA), DoDEA school boards act purely in an advisory capacity, providing input to the Superintendent and administrators in the areas of fiscal, personnel and educational policies, procedures and programs. The DoDEA Americas school district superintendent makes final decisions on matters affecting the school district. Read more about the responsibilities of a DoDEA Americas School Board.
School board members are elected by and represent the parents and legal guardians of students enrolled in the Fort Knox schools.
Andrew Doehring - President
Jennifer Short - Vice President
Board meetings are scheduled during most months of the academic year. The meetings are open to the community and public participation is encouraged.
