Eligibility requirements for the DoDEA Virtual School (DVS) follow the same eligibility requirements to attend any DoDEA brick and mortar school. Any student who is not eligible (and geographically able) to attend a brick and mortar DoDEA school, is also not eligible to attend the DVS. DVS does not have the authority to directly enroll students into our school. Regrettably, we are unable to continue an enrollment in the DoDEA Virtual School when the sponsor is no longer assigned to a location that operates a DoDEA school. Given this is a matter of law, and not policy, there is not an option to grant an exception.
Students eligible for DVS enrollment due to being enrolled at the local school who subsequently moved should be withdrawn from the local school which would end their eligibility for DVS as well.
All transfers/withdrawals from DoDEA would be handled by the child's local brick and mortar school. If you are PCSing to an area where your child is eligible to attend a DoDEA school, your child's current school would need to do a school-to-school transfer. Then, work with the new school to ensure the child's instruction status remains Virtual Instruction, maintaining their DVS courses.
Please see your local school registrar for further information.
We encourage you to contact email@example.com for support in transitioning to the local education authority.
Eligibility information for enrollment in a DoDEA brick and mortar school:
The Expanded Eligibility Pilot Program is an enrollment expansion authorized by the National Defense Authorization Act. Its purpose is to evaluate the feasibility and scalability of a permanent DVHS program expansion as well as assess the impact of the expanded enrollment on military and family readiness. The four-year pilot is open to military-connected school districts that support remote installations and will supplement (not compete with) school districts and private programs. Students in this program may take up to two non-core courses per year (not a full-time program).
