Outreach Excellence

DoDEA is committed to creating successful partnerships with families and communities. Partnerships and outreach are essential to attaining DoDEA’s Student, School, and Organizational Excellence Goals. DoDEA must cultivate and sustain a wide variety of partnerships with students, families, commands, universities, and local businesses to develop college and career ready students. Outreach Excellence is supported by two Strategic Initiatives centered on creating opportunities for students and increasing organizational capacity. DoDEA will leverage existing partnerships and programs, such as DoDEA’s Grant and Non-DoD School Programs, and explore additional opportunities to provide enriching experiences for students and employees.

Partnerships for Student Success

DoDEA participates in a wide variety of partnerships. However, there is currently no comprehensive listing of partnerships or systematic way to collect and share best practices. An important initial step is to inventory and highlight best practices with partnerships in DoDEA schools. DoDEA will seek to add to that list in the coming years.

Partnerships for Organizational Success

DoDEA can also benefit from relationships that enhance workforce and student services and provide opportunities for talent acquisition and professional growth. These partnerships will offer employees critical recruitment and professional learning opportunities as they pursue various career pathways and progress in their careers.

DoDEA is committed to creating successful partnerships with families and communities.
