Okinawa District Advisory Council (ODAC)

The Okinawa District Advisory Council (ODAC) consists of a four panel member from each branch of service. There is a school liaison officer from each branch of service as well. ODAC meetings are held four times a year and all communities members are welcome to attend the meetings. Please see our district calendar for meeting dates.

To Volunteer

Our schools have many volunteer opportunities available to parents eager to get involved with their student's education or for other interested community members. In order to volunteer with our schools individuals must have a security background check completed as well as fill out a volunteer package. To get started with this process please contact the school you are interested in volunteering with to pick up a volunteer package for that school.
