DoDEA Virtual School K-8: Local School Support

The DVS K-8 Option is unable to provide direct enrollment into its program. All students must remain registered and enrolled in their local DoDEA school.  Your local school will provide support to those services and areas noted below, though this list may not be inclusive. 

Laptops, Chromebooks, and Student Email Accounts

If you choose to use your own laptop or chromebook from home, you will find a list of technical requirements here.

Please note: DoDEA Educational Technologists and the helpdesk are unable to provide students who use their home computers with hardware and software support that is not directly related to the DoDEA curriculum.

Upon registration in their local school, students receive a DoDEA email account.  For information concerning that account, please contact your local school.
