Ensuring Workforce and Human Capital Capacity
DoDEA’s success in providing excellence in education to every student begins with recruiting and retaining a range of talented individuals. This Strategic Initiative directs DoDEA’s efforts to identify staffing shortfalls, hire and develop diverse and talented employees, and prioritize critical staffing needs. This Strategic Initiative will help DoDEA develop a Human Capital Plan that incorporates recruitment, retention, and succession strategies in order to sustain appropriate levels of staffing.
Equitable Employee Engagement
Employee engagement is the key to a productive workforce. To support engagement, DoDEA will embark on a series of cultural audits to use data to drive meaningful change. DoDEA will also encourage employee engagement by developing career pathways and progression plans that identify relevant professional learning opportunities as well as leadership development across all domains. Finally, DoDEA will develop interactive employee onboarding and off-boarding processes that ensure we provide employees with positive first and last steps in their DoDEA journey.
Improving DoDEA's System of Professional Learning
Professional learning is the key lever to meeting the evolving needs of students. DoDEA supports educators at all levels as they develop their instructional practices through standards aligned professional learning opportunities. Through this Strategic Initiative, principals, assistant principals, and district administrators will receive additional support in their work as instructional leaders. As school administrators grow, they will make an even greater positive impact on the educators in their schools.
