DoDEA Virtual School - Parent Letter 19 August

Dear Parent/Sponsor/Student, 

Welcome to school year 21-22 at the DoDEA Virtual School. Our classes begin on Monday, August 23rd and we are looking forward to having your student participate in the full-time virtual option.

For students in grades K-5, printed materials have been shipped to local brick and mortar schools. Once we receive confirmation of delivery we will send out an email with instructions on how parents can pick up the materials from their local school.

All students will complete an orientation course the first week of school; students should follow the instructions posted by the teacher.

The video link below provides an Elementary School Parent Demonstration. This will also be a part of the orientation course, so you can view it then if you want.

Attached is the DoDEA Virtual School calendar for 2021-2022 for your reference.  Please note that this calendar may be different than your local school’s calendar.  Our classes and students will follow the DVS calendar.

As we look ahead at getting started, be sure you have received your student’s DoDEA google email address and password from your local school. Each school has a different process for setting up student passwords. To access Schoology, where all K-12 courses are located, students should use the address: Students will use the student Google account to log in to Schoology.


Please use our technology help desk for any virtual school tech issues.

The faculty and staff of DoDEA Virtual School are looking forward to helping your student achieve mastery and success this school year.

DoDEA Virtual School

DoDEA Virtual School (DVS) provides interactive and engaging instruction that prepares students to learn, work, and serve a global society. DVS is comprised of these programs: Virtual Option K-12, DoDEA Virtual High School (DVHS) Supplemental, DVHS Expanded Eligibility Pilot Program (E2P2), Non-DoD Schools Program (NDSP), and the Domestic Transition Program. 

  • The DVS Virtual Option offers full-time virtual school enrollment for students in grades K-12 as a temporary, emergency response to the COVID-19 Pandemic and has allowed families with health vulnerabilities an option to receive a great education from their homes, while safely opening schools for those who prefer in-person instruction. This full-time virtual option will be available for a limited number of DoDEA students with a medical need in SY 2021-22. Students in grades K-8 take the four core courses (math, science, social studies, and language arts) plus one special/elective. High school students take 5 or 6 courses and may need to take summer school courses to stay on track to graduate. 
  • DoDEA Virtual High School is a fully accredited DoDEA high school that provides online asynchronous courses with synchronous support by full-time DoDEA certified teachers. All courses are aligned to DoDEA College and Career Readiness Standards. The DVHS supports high school students in multiple ways:  a supplemental program to students currently enrolled in a worldwide DoDEA school,  the DVHS Expanded Eligibility Pilot Program (E2P2), the Non-DoD Schools Program (NDSP), the Domestic Transition Program, and current DoDEA high school students taking a course in the summer
