The quality of K-12 education is an important criterion for retention of the military family. The Department of Defense Education Activity (DoDEA) is charged with the critical responsibility and privilege of educating the children of our nation's military. Recognizing that over 1.1M military-connected students attend public schools, leveraging partnerships with school districts is paramount in influencing successful educational outcomes for military-connected students. Consequently, the National Defense Authorization Act of 2008 provided DoDEA the authority to share resources with public schools that educate military-connected students. From 2009 to current, over 475 grants have been awarded by DoDEA, totaling over $522 million in investments for LEAs serving military-connected students. DoDEA's Grant Program has reached over 3.2 million students in over 3,100 school districts across the country.
