What Is Sure Start?
Sure Start is an exemplary, research-based preschool program that serves military children and families living overseas. Read more...
Sure Start’s first responsibility is to the 4-year-old child (the child who turns 4 by September 1 of the enrolling school year of a military or eligible Department of Defense employee whose rank is Enlisted (E) E1 to E4; General Schedule (GS)/National Security Personnel System (**NSPS, pay band 1, rank equivalent) GS1 to GS4; or Non Appropriated Fund (NAF), NAF 1 to NAF 2, *rank equivalent at the date of application. (Note that the application date is not to exceed six months before the first day of the following school year.) Eligibility for Sure Start programs does not extend to students who are non-DoD sponsored or to children who are geographically in a non-DoDDS site. It is important to note that only the sponsor’s rank is used to determine eligibility—not family income, unless it is used to determine rank equivalents for NAF Levels 1-4 or **NSPS, pay band 1, rank equivalent GS1- GS9. Any sponsor in the range of E5 to E9, GS5 to GS9 (**NSPS pay band 1, rank equivalent), or NAF 3-4, rank equivalent who wishes to apply for the program is eligible to do so with the understanding that first priority is given to those children whose sponsor is in the E1 to E4, GS1 to GS4/**NSPS pay band 1, rank equivalent, or NAF 1 to NAF 2, rank equivalent range. Further explanation of eligibility requirements can be found in the Sure Start Program Guide.²
*NAF Rank Equivalent: The non-appropriated fund rank is used to determine Sure Start eligibility for the dependents of NAF employees. The NAF employee rank uses different banding levels than its counterparts (i.e. Enlisted (E) service members or General Schedule (GS) civilian employees.) In order to determine the priority order for enrollment in the Sure Start Program, the NAF employee rank must be at level which is equivalent to the enlisted service member and General GS civilian employee.
**NSPS, pay band 1, Rank Equivalent: The National Security Personnel System rank is used to determine Sure Start eligibility for the dependents of NSPS employees. The NSPS uses different banding levels than its counterparts. In order to determine the priority order for enrollment in the Sure Start Program, the NSPS employee rank must be a t a level which is equivalent to the enlisted service member and General GS civilian employee.
