About Us

The Partnership and Resources Division (PART) supports the DoDEA vision to be among the world's leaders in education, enriching the lives of military-connected students and the communities in which they live. To achieve this mission, our work extends to military-connected students in states and countries that are not directly served by a DoDEA school. To reach the full intent of this mission we partner with internal DoD stakeholders and external military-connected associations and education organizations and agencies.



  • To provide resources, technical assistance, and support that facilitates the continuity of education and equitable learning experiences for military-connected transitioning students PreK-grade 12;
  • To implement programs of scale that support DoD dependents around the country and the world;
  • To promote, foster, and engage in partnerships with stakeholders that support military-connected students, families and communities.


The PART Division impacts over 350,000 students annually though programs and stakeholder connections

DoD Impact Aid: DoDEA administers Department of Defense (DoD) Impact Aid programs.  This funding reimburses public school districts that meet specific eligibility criteria and is a supplemental funding opportunity to Department of Ed Impact Aid.

Education Connections: The PART Division serves as a catalyst to integrate existing educational efforts and a champion for quality educational opportunities for all military children.   Our vetted and updated resources are based on decades of work with military-connected agencies, public and private not-for-profit organizations, requests for new resources and our direct work with families. 

Grant Program: Local public-school districts across the United States that have at least one school with a 10% military-connected student population, are eligible to submit an application to the competitive DoDEA Grant Program.  

Non DoD School Program (NDSP): DoDEA provides educational support and financial assistance to families assigned to international locations where there is no DoDEA school.

Special Arrangements: DoDEA implements six contracts in four locations providing a cohesive and comprehensive PreK-Grade 12 education to DoD dependents who are not served by a DoDEA school.  The program supports nearly 1,500 students each year.
