Equitable Learning Experiences for All Students
To meet the needs of its diverse student population, DoDEA students must be provided with equitable learning experiences. This will allow all students to flourish and reach their highest academic and developmental potential.
The first step in this process is leveraging appropriate student data to better understand what standards they have mastered and where they might need additional support. Under this Strategic Initiative, DoDEA will monitor summative and formative assessment data through the DoDEA Comprehensive Assessment System (DoDEA CAS) to further advance student learning. One key component this Strategic Initiative is reviewing and incorporating the recommendations of the Balanced Assessment Working Group. This group collaboratively develop recommendations regarding the next iteration of DoDEA’s balanced assessments system and instructional supports to enable educators and leaders to make data-informed instructional and leadership decisions. The data will be used in the classroom to provide students with rigorous instruction and tiered supports.
Successful Transition to College, Career, and Life
DoDEA has made significant progress toward identifying career pathways and developing programs to help students transition to college, career, and life. DoDEA will continue to ensure that students at all grade levels are provided with the academic foundation, social and emotional skills, and counseling services necessary to be ready for college or a career.
Another key avenue for supporting students in their next steps is through the partnerships DoDEA maintains with the communities we serve. Our partnerships with students, families, commands, universities, and local businesses enable us to impact not only those students who attend DoDEA schools, but all military-connected students.
