All public land was once tribal land. From the Seminole people of the Everglades to the Athabascans who gave Denali its name, Native Americans have a connection to every national park, wildlife refuge and wilderness across the country. American Indians and Alaska Natives are incredibly diverse, with over 570 federally recognized tribes and over 5 million members, each with their own cultures and traditions.

DoDEA, one of only two federally operated school systems, is responsible for planning, directing, coordinating and managing pre-kindergarten through 12th grade educational programs on behalf of the Department of Defense (DoD).

DoDEA is globally positioned, operating 164 accredited schools in 8 districts located in 11 foreign countries and seven states, and in Guam and Puerto Rico.

A field activity of the Office of the Secretary of Defense, DoDEA is headed by a director who oversees all agency functions from DoDEA’s headquarters in Alexandria, Virginia. Our schools are divided into three regions: DoDEA Europe, DoDEA Pacific and DoDEA Americas. Each region is managed by a Director for Student Excellence.

I attended Woodbridge JHS in 1961 -62. I'm on a quest to find my homeroom teacher from then. 7th grade. Miss Kono, from Hawaii. She was in her early 20's at the time. Please let me know if you know her or how to contact her....Cheers
Will you hold any more information events like the one today? While I appreciate the efforts to get everyone ready for the coming school year I feel like this mornings event was more for the ones wanting to know more about and electing the virtual learning option. There was little to no information for those electing to send our kids physically back to school. How can we find out more about what to expect, how we can help, and what's being done at our physical schools?
I'd just like to congratulate my cousin, Colleen English, who is leaving her teaching job at Spangdahlem Elementary and will be starting her new job as assistant principal at Lakenheath Elementary. Good luck!!
The families of the Senior Class at Lejeune High School are NOT happy about the graduation for our small class of graduates. Dodea Mid-Atlantic District and Dodea Lejeune High School we have repeatedly told you how we felt with NO communication between administration and the parents. We are being told how things will be handled even though the command has repeatedly informed you that they can accommodate a different graduation ceremony OTHER than the approach you are taking. We had NO say in this and as we emerge into phase 2, our ideas are legitimately feasible. I feel so sad regarding the lack of cohesive communication between administration and the students!!! NOT ONCE has administration worked with us this year on ANYTHING...as a DoDDS kid myself growing up and coming from a very supportive school overseas for my kids (Naples Middle High School), I am absolutely flabbergasted on how LHS has supported it's families. This graduation is like the cherry on the cake. Unbelievable.
We the parents of the C/O 2020 for Lejeune High School in the Mid-Atlantic district are wanting to know why there was a conference call set up for tomorrow to discuss possible plans of a modified graduation if you all were never going to go through with listening to us. We know that tomorrow we will be in Phase 2, granting there to be groups of 25 and therefore we could have 3-4 staggered groups of Seniors to have a traditional graduation. There are schools that have 10 times the amount of graduated that we have, who have put forth great efforts to make sure their kids have a real graduation. There was nothing but deception put forth from the beginning when we were told that the virtual graduation was a “back up” plan. You knew your intentions the whole time. To say that we are upset for being misled is a understatement. You agreed to try to come to a happy medium and you never had any intention of doing so.
The College Board is giving exams such as the AP exams that will require military children in Asia to take the exams at 3am and 5am. The College Board has not answered any of these concerns on their website, page or FAQ. What steps has DoDEA taken to contact the College Board to advocate on behalf of military children?
❤People Please Love And Support These Department For Building🌞 Feuture Of Our Kids❤🌍🌏
Thank goodness over my rare teaching positions for 32 years I never had to deal with something so horrendous as this. Theses are unprecidented times. I applaud all teachers serving overseas for our military families. I felt I was asked above and beyond but these are life saving procedures. They can't even come home and are trapped by a virus. God Bless them all. Listen to Tom Brady's speech to a reporter.
It’s Friday! Great week of virtual school. Big thanks to Pam Borgert best teacher in DODEA! We took a lunch break, went to Annie’s favorite, Taco Bell ( gross) and had a “Nannie and Annie” manicure! Came home, Annie knocking out the last of the weeks school work, then 45 minutes of reading! Let the weekend begin!
Together we can keep everyone healthy!
When will selections be made for next year's positions?
