As part of the DoDEA Blueprint for Continuous Improvement and Director's Focus 2021, the DoDEA IT Division has realigned technology staff and services to meet key success criteria, with keen focus on: Innovation, Engagement, Education, Readiness, Accountability, and Data-Informed solutions.
DoDEA IT's technology experts empower DoDEA’s global community through innovative, industry-leading technology services and solutions. In addition to staff realignment, key programs and services such as ClassLink and Microsoft Teams will be implemented to directly support Blueprint GOAL 4: ORGANIZATIONAL EXCELLENCE, which includes Comprehensive Planning, Internal Communication and Information Technology (IT) Modernization.
For School Year 2020-2021, two key efforts will engage educators and support staff to help inform technology decisions and planning: 1) Classroom Technology Requirements Series and the 2) DoDEA Champions Program. Additionally, new services including ClassLink, Microsoft 365 & Teams, and the Data Warehouse will be phased in throughout the school year to allow for feedback and training. Training and reference sheets will be provided to ETs and IT support staff prior to releases. Additionally, users will have access to asynchronous training as well as bi-weekly tips and live question & answer sessions with DoDEA IT.
As the leaders for all DoDEA technology, our IT professionals help DoDEA leverage 21st century solutions for 21st century success.
