Department of Defense Education Activity

General Information

For safety reasons, all visitors and volunteers must report to the school’s front office immediately upon entering the school.

Due to COVID-19, schools are currently minimizing volunteers/visitors in the classroom.

A visitor/volunteer is someone who is not a school employee or enrolled student and enters the school during operating hours. The school administration has the final determination on visitors/volunteers authorized to be at the school. When visiting, visitors/volunteers may go only to the approved area indicated as their destination when signing in at the front office. All visitors will receive an appropriate visitor’s badge, which is to be displayed conspicuously at all times while on school grounds. Any change to the designated location must be approved by the school’s front office before the visitor/volunteer can access a different location within the school. Upon finishing their visit, visitors/volunteers must check out at the front office, return the visitor’s badge, and exit the school. Parents are welcome to visit the school and classrooms to observe the school’s programs for brief periods of time that do not interfere with instruction. Approval by school personnel is required for this type of visitation.

Learn more about volunteering at your school's Get Involved page.

DoDEA school administrators, in partnership with sponsors/family members, students, and military leaders, promote communication through the establishment of advisory committees to address issues (school initiatives, procedures and policies) locally. This is a system-wide way for parents to get involved in their child’s local school. Consult your child’s school to learn more about school advisory committees.

Learn more about SAC's at your school's Get Involved page.


Proof of Eligibility: The sponsor does not need to be present at registration, as long as the parent or other adult registering the child has all the necessary paperwork, in accordance with DoDEA Regulation 1342.13, “Eligibility Requirements for Education of Elementary and Secondary School-Age Dependents in Overseas Areas,” September 20, 2006, as amended, and DoD Instruction 1342.26, “Eligibility Requirements for Minor Dependents to Attend Department of Defense Domestic Dependent Elementary and Secondary Schools (DDESS),” March 4, 1997. 

The following documents are necessary to complete the registration process:

  1. Proof of age;
  2. Medical records, including information on medical conditions, medications, and all dates and types of immunizations;
  3. Official documents to support eligibility (e.g., letter of employment, contract, permanent change of station [PCS] orders, etc.); and
  4. Proof of on-base residence (applies to students enrolling in DoD domestic schools).

Contact the registrar at your child’s school to update your child’s information or visit your school's registration page for more information on enrollment. 

In accordance with the policy stated in DoDEA Regulation 2095.01, “School Attendance,” August 26, 2011, as amended, school attendance is mandatory. All students are required to attend school to ensure continuity of instruction and that they successfully meet academic standards and demonstrate continuous educational progress. School attendance is a joint responsibility between the parent or sponsor, student, classroom teacher, school personnel, and, in some cases, the Command. Students with excessive school absences (or tardiness) shall be monitored by the Student Support Team to assist in the completion of all required work and successful mastery of course objectives.

Daily student attendance is identified based upon a quarter of the school day formula. Students will be identified as present or absent, based on the following criteria:

  1. Absent up to 25% of the school day = absent one-quarter of the school day
  2. Absent between 26%–50% of the school day = absent one-half of the school day
  3. Absent 51%–75% of the school day = absent three-quarters of the school day
  4. Absent 76%–100% of the school day = full-day absence

DoDEA considers the following conditions to constitute reasonable cause for absence from school for reasons other than school-related activities:

  1. Personal illness;
  2. Medical, dental, or mental health appointment;
  3. Serious illness in the student’s immediate family;
  4. A death in the student’s immediate family or of a relative;
  5. Religious holiday;
  6. Emergency conditions such as fire, flood, or storm;
  7. Unique family circumstances warranting absence and coordinated with school administration;
  8. College visits that cannot be scheduled on non-school days; and
  9. A pandemic event.

Unexcused absences may result in school disciplinary actions. An absence from school or a class without written verification from a parent or sponsor will be unexcused. Student attendance is calculated based upon the date of enrollment in a DoDEA school, which may occur anytime during the school year. Student attendance monitoring is designed to provide a continuum of intervention and services to support families and children in keeping children in school and combating truancy and educational neglect. Parents should notify the school of their child’s absence 30 minutes after the start of the school day.  Too many unexcused absences may trigger the Student Support Team to convene.

More about DoDEA Attendance Policy (

The Principal may authorize an accelerated withdrawal of a student who must withdraw from school 20 or less instructional days prior to the end of a semester, in accordance with Section 3.1.d, of DoDEA Administrative Instruction 1367.01, “High School Graduation Requirements and Policy,” [TBD]. Accelerated withdrawal will only be considered if the parent/sponsor presents PCS orders. The parent or sponsor must present verification of the date required for the student to depart from the school (e.g., PCS orders). All of the conditions of an accelerated study program outlined by the student’s teachers must be met prior to withdrawal in order for grades to be assigned and credit to be granted. Students who withdraw prior to the 20-day limitation of the accelerated withdrawal policy will receive “withdrawal” grades rather than final grades. In this case, the sponsor/parent should notify the school two weeks prior to the date of withdrawal.

Report Card and Testing Information

At the beginning of each course or grade level, every DoDEA teacher shall make available information regarding grading policy and course requirements to parents and students. This information will be provided to parents and students by the end of the first month of the school year or by the end of the first month of the semester in the case of a semester course.

If any student demonstrates unsatisfactory progress or achievement, teachers must notify parents with enough time to correct the deficiency. Notification must occur as soon as unsatisfactory achievement is evident, and not later than the midpoint of the nine-week grading period.

Timely and accurate reporting of student progress shall be accomplished for students in grades 4–12, using the approved DoDEA Electronic Gradebook (EGB) System. All assignments (e.g., quizzes, tests, examinations, homework, speeches, etc.) that are used to assess and report student progress shall be promptly evaluated and/or graded, posted in the EGB, and returned to the student. The normal period of evaluation and posting should be no longer than ten calendar days from the day the assignment is collected, with reasonable exceptions for large projects. At a minimum, one assignment or grade should be recorded per week in the EGB System. To create an account and access the EGB System, please visit Gradespeed ( for instructions.

A traditional letter grading system will be used for grades 4–12 report marks.

Student Conduct and Discipline

Management of student behavior is a responsibility shared by students, sponsors/parents/guardians, teachers, and the military command and school communities in general, in accordance with DoDEA Administrative Instruction 1353.01, “Student Rights and Responsibilities,” April 6, 2021. Student behavioral management consists of teaching and reinforcing positive student attitudes and behaviors. Students shall treat teachers, administrators, and other school staff with courtesy, fairness, and respect; and teachers, administrators, and other school staff shall treat students with courtesy, fairness, and respect. All students will be disciplined in a fair and appropriate manner. School administrators shall operate and maintain a safe school environment that is conducive to learning. School administration will ensure prompt investigation and response to incidents or complaints involving students made by students, parents, teachers, or DoDEA staff members.

In accordance with the policy stated in DoDEA Administrative Instruction 1347.01, “Student Disciplinary Rules and Procedures,” April 7, 2021, discipline shall be progressively and fairly administered. Disciplinary actions include, but are not limited to, verbal reprimands, conferences, detention, time-out, alternative in-school placements, school service programs, community service and counseling programs. Other behavior management techniques will be considered prior to resorting to more formal disciplinary actions that remove a student from school for a suspension (short or long term). Long-term suspension or expulsion following a first offense may be considered when a student poses an immediate threat to his or her safety or the safety of others (e.g., offenses involving firearms or other weapons, fighting or violence, or the possession, use, or sale of drugs). Additional rules and procedures can be reviewed in DoDEA Administrative Instruction 1347.01.

It is DoDEA policy that discipline be maintained consistently and appropriately. We encourage students to grow in self-control, develop a sense of regard for fellow students, and have pride in their school community. Students have the responsibility for conducting themselves in a manner that does not violate the rights of other people. Along with staff, students share the responsibility of developing a caring climate within the school that is conducive to productive learning.

  • Protect others and self from danger and injury.
  • Demonstrate respect for school property.
  • Obey all school adults promptly.
  • Use appropriate language.
  • Wear appropriate attire to school.

In the wake of school violence throughout the world, it is important to analyze the causes of violence and implement preventive measures to assure that every student and adult will feel secure in the school environment. DoDEA implemented a system-wide Bully Prevention program as a part of the Safe Schools and Character Education program.

Stop Bullying now

Bullying is defined as a means to have power over another and it takes many forms: physical, verbal, and indirect such as gossip and isolation. Bullying leaves long-lasting scars for its victims. Bullies have a higher incidence of antisocial behavior, domestic violence and crime as adults. Society pays a heavy toll for tolerating bullying behavior and bullies.

In DoDEA schools and community, bullying will not go unchallenged and will not be tolerated. All students, staff members, parents and the community play vital roles to ensure our children are not bullied, do not act as bullies, and will not allow others to bully. Our schools have a moral obligation to provide our students and the school community with the proper information, prevention strategies, and defenses to create a safe, accepting and caring environment for all.

DoDEA enforces a no weapons policy. Students and parents are hereby notified that possession of weapons (see 'Weapons' section below) or replicas of weapons can result in expulsion from school.

In addition to weapons, students are not allowed to bring knives, matches, lighters or other dangerous objects to school. Toys, electronic devices, trading cards, chains, (even on wallets or keys) CD's and water guns should not be brought, as they tend to distract children from their learning tasks. Possession of tobacco in any form and alcohol will not be tolerated. Gum is not allowed in school. This list is not all-inclusive. If you have any doubt about bringing an article to school, consult the school office. Nuisance items, which are dangerous to the safety of others or have the potential to cause damage to personal or school property such as fireworks, smoke & stink bombs, eggs and shaving cream will be confiscated and not returned. When appropriate these items will be given to the Security Police. Prohibited items will be confiscated and released only to the sponsor.

It should be noted that possession or use of a weapon or prohibited items on DoD property is a crime and will be reported to security officials. Disciplinary action may include suspension or expulsion. DoDEA supports a no tolerance policy for weapon possession.


Each student, together with the student’s parent or guardian (if applicable), shall acknowledge and sign Form 700, “Use of DoDEA Internet and Use of Information Technology Resources,” before he or she is assigned a user account. In accordance with Enclosure 4 of DoDEA Administrative Instruction 6600.01, “Computer Access and Internet Policy,” February 16, 2010, the following are required of all students:

  1. Students shall use DoDEA information technology (IT) resources, including computers, electronic mail, and internet access, only in support of education and for research consistent with the educational objectives of DoDEA; 
  2. Students shall respect and adhere to all of the rules governing access to, and use of, DoDEA’s IT resources;

The signed agreement (Form 700) is to be retained in the administrative office at the student’s school for the duration of the student’s enrollment. A copy will be provided to the student and, if applicable, the student’s parent or guardian.

Use of personal social media between parents/teachers/students is discouraged.  The only acceptable form of social media communication between parents/teachers/students is through official school social media.

Student Transportation

Student transportation is defined as the transportation of students from their assigned bus stop to school at the beginning of their school day, during the mid-day and for return to their assigned bus stop at the end of the normal scheduled school day.  DoDEA principals are responsible for monitoring student loading/unloading zones when students are coming and going from school sites, including administering discipline.  A school bus or any device operating to provide student transportation will function as an extension of the school.  The walking distance for students in grade 6 and below should not exceed one mile from the student’s primary residence to the school or designated bus stop.  Students in grades 7–12 may walk up to 1.5 miles from their primary residence to the school or designated bus stop.  These distances may be slightly expanded or contracted to conform to natural boundaries such as housing areas or neighborhoods.  In locations having middle schools, which include grade 6 (i.e., grades 6–8), the walking distance criteria shall be the same as the criteria for grades 7–12.  

Transportation is not authorized to take students to their homes or to eating facilities for their mid-day meal.  No other transportation between the assigned bus stop and the school will be charged to commuting transportation unless stated in a special education student’s IEP and/or required by Section 504 guidelines.  “Curb-to-curb” only applies to students with disabilities who require such service as documented in the student’s IEP.  DoDEA District Superintendents, in coordination with the District Logistics Chief and the supporting military installation commanders, will establish a commuting area to determine eligibility for transportation of dependent students.

Honor Roll

Students in grades 4 and 5 who have A’s and B’s on their quarterly Progress Reports will receive an Honor Roll certificate.

Special Awards

Students will receive reading/language arts and math awards as well as specialist’s awards. 

When parents or teachers request a grade readjustment or retention, a meeting must first be held that includes the parent, classroom teacher, and counselor. At this meeting an intervention plan should be developed to address the concerns regarding the student’s placement. If the intervention plan is not successful and retention or grade readjustment is still being considered, the Placement Committee must meet. The Placement Committee consists of the counselor, parents, classroom teacher(s) and other educational specialists, as appropriate. The Placement Committee makes a recommendation to the principal regarding the student’s placement. The principal will take the recommendation into consideration, as well as examining the academic, social and emotional factors, to determine final placement of the student.

Homework is defined as assignments to be done outside the classroom to reinforce classroom instruction, increase understanding and retention, transfer and extend classroom instruction, prepare for class discussion, and curriculum enrichment. As appropriate to the nature of the assignment, teachers shall evaluate and return the homework assignments to the students and shall periodically inform students and their parents of the student’s academic progress and mastery of learning objectives. 


Parents may drop off students in the front of the building at the ‘Kiss and Ride’ drop off locations. This is a 3 minute drop off area only. You may not park to enter the building. If you need to enter the building before school starts you will need to park in one of the parking lots. Students are to arrive no earlier than 7:45 a.m., 10 minutes before the first bell. Students are not permitted in any school building before school hours unless they are under direct supervision of a parent or guardian. Supervision of students does not begin until 7:45 a.m. Parents will be notified if their child continues to arrive at school too early. Should the problem persist, the chain of command will be notified. Your cooperation in this matter will greatly enhance the safety and security of our students.


For the safety and security of ALL of our students, written notification, from a parent or guardian, must be provided to the classroom teacher at the beginning of the school day informing him/her of any change to the student’s established end-of-school-day dismissal plan. If family after-school plans change during the course of the school day due to an emergency, please contact the school office in person or by telephone. 

Child Find, a joint program between DoDEA and the military, has been developed to identify and offer early intervention for children with special needs, three years of age or older. Contact the school office for additional information.

Procedures for emergency evacuation in case of fire, bomb threats, or security issues are practiced throughout the school year.

Fire drills are held weekly during the first month of school and monthly for the remainder of the school year. Each semester an emergency evacuation drill is conducted. In the event of a fire or bomb threat, students would be evacuated to the RB Chapel. If early dismissal were required, the contract bus company would be notified and students would board the buses by the RB Chapel. In the event of an early dismissal due to an emergency, parents could pick up their children at the RB Chapel. They would be required to check with those in charge before leaving with a child in order to maintain accountability for all students. Prior to dismissal time, students will not be allowed to be checked out for any reason from the evacuation area.

Lockdown Drills

Twice a year we are required to conduct a “lockdown drill”. This drill is designed to protect students and staff in the event of an intruder entering the building. 

Found items are put in the hallway cabinet located to the left as the children walk out to the playground next to the Multi-Purpose Room. Small items or items of value (i.e. glasses, jewelry, and wallets) are turned into the school office and may be claimed there. Please check first with the driver for items lost on the bus, then contact the School  Bus Office at (DSN) 430-8493-8497or (CIV) 680-8493-8497 if they are not found. 

The school bulletin is published at the end of each week. Our bulletin features upcoming school events, news items, information regarding school activities, and interesting articles pertinent to education and/or student achievement. Articles for the weekly bulletin must be submitted to the school office before noon on Thursday of each week to be included in the next bulletin.

To keep parents informed of student progress, the school sends home progress reports every nine weeks. At the end of the first marking period in November, parent-teacher conferences are scheduled for all students. One day is provided at the end of the both the second and third marking periods for conferences, as needed or requested. Conference dates are shown on the school calendar.

Conferences between parents and teachers are highly encouraged. The teacher or the parent may request conferences by phone or note. Detailed conferences about student conduct or performance should not be held at such public gatherings as PTA or SAC meetings. 

The daily recess period is considered an integral part of the school program and each child is expected to participate unless instructed by a physician to do otherwise. Children are not sent outside during inclement weather; however, parents are urged to ensure that children wear suitable, warm clothing during winter to include gloves, hats, and waterproof footwear.

All visitors must sign in at the office. A visitor’s pass is required while visiting a classroom or any other school area. With a concern for security and the safety issue of all students, all visitors to DoD schools are required to sign in at the office and obtain a visitor’s badge to be worn at all times while in the school. This is a requirement throughout the DoDEA system. You are encouraged to visit your child’s classroom and the school.

Study Trips

Well-planned, grade-level study trips are offered throughout the year. Designed to balance the instructional program, study trips are an important and integral supplement to classroom instruction.
Parent participation in chaperoning study trips is greatly encouraged. The type and nature of the trip determine the number of chaperones needed. Notifications of study trips are sent home with students listing the destination, date, time of the trip, and other information regarding lunch, admission cost, etc. The parent must sign a permission slip before each trip. Study trips may be canceled if there are not enough chaperones. Preschoolers and other siblings may not accompany parents on study trips, since the role of the chaperone is to be completely focused on the safety and well being of the children assigned to him or her. Smoking and use of alcohol are prohibited on study trips.

Extra-Curricular Activities 

A variety of activities are available for students to participate in outside the regular school curriculum and school day

Parent Teacher Association (PTA)

The PTA plays a vital role in improving the instructional program of the school by providing additional services and an opportunity for better home-school communication through scheduled meetings and activities. The organization receives funds primarily from activities such as school pictures and book fairs. Other funds are received from outside organizations such as the Stuttgart Community Spouses Club. Volunteers are needed to carry out successful programs and projects. The PTA offers volunteers an opportunity to gain skills in various areas, which can be credited toward work experience with the American Red Cross.

School Advisory Committee (SAC)

Our school, in accordance with instructions from the Department of Defense Dependents Schools, annually elects a School Advisory Committee composed of four parents and four teachers. The SAC is responsible for advising the school principal on matters affecting the operation of the school. Committee matters include: school policies, instructional programs, staffing, as it relates to the instructional program, budget, facilities, administrative procedures, pupil personnel services, educational resources, program evaluation, student standards of conduct, and other educational related matters. The committee provides two-way communication between the community and the
school. The installation commander, the school principal, and a teachers’ union representative serve as liaison members. The general goals of the SAC are:


  • Coordinating all community resources in a concerted effort to support the educational program of the school.
  • Providing a forum for the discussion of school achievements and concerns and other school related matters.
  • Disseminating information about the school.
  • Acting as a "sounding board" for an individual or group that may want to propose additions to or changes in school policy.

Office of DoDEA Policy

The Policy Team of OPLP administers and operates the DoDEA Issuance Program, the Issuance Focal Point Working Group, and facilitates DoD-level issuance coordination for DoDEA.
