Dear Partners:

To advance the lives of our military-connected students, the Department of Defense Education Activity (DoDEA) relies on one true vision: “Excellence in Education for Every Student, Every Day, Everywhere.” The DoDEA Education Partnership Grant Program beautifully showcases this vision. Since 2009, DoDEA has awarded over 475 grants in 36 states reaching over 3,000 military-connected public schools nationwide. 

Through our grant program we are building partnerships that help military connected students be college and career ready. By sharing resources, we can empower students to work toward clear, consistent and high-reaching goals and exceed learning expectations in order to achieve a rich, rigorous and well-rounded education. This website is yet another way we share our resources with our partners. This website provides a centralized location for military-connected school districts who have been awarded DoDEA grants and those who are grant seekers to find information about our grant tools and resources.

DoDEA Partners with Penn State Clearinghouse to Provide Military-Connected Student Resources
DoDEA has partnered with the Penn State University to develop materials for school support staff and personnel that includes resources to use within the school setting or to share with families. Resources include brochures, directories, handouts/ printables, and information on informal strategies or formal programs that may assist school personnel and service providers working with military-connected students and families.

Grantee Spotlight

The COVID-19 could not stop this year’s Air Force Association (AFA) CyberCamp, a weeklong curriculum and accompanying competition that gives San Diego, CA middle and high school students hands-on cybersecurity education and training. Typically in person, this year’s CyberCamp went virtual due to San Diego’s stay at home orders in response to COVID-19, with each student, teacher, and Naval Information Warfare Center Pacific (NIWC Pacific) volunteer working through the five-day camp remotely, June 15 – 19, 2020. This year the camp mentored 86 students from San Diego County: 33 from Eastlake Middle School, 30 from Rancho Del Rey Middle School, and 23 from Olympian High School. Each iteration of the camp was led by two instructors, Sweetwater Union High School District (SUHSD) staff members, and supported by volunteers like those from NIWC Pacific. Summer cyber camps like the AFA CyberCamp are funded by a Department of Defense Education Activity (DoDEA) grant that aims to provide educational resources with public schools that serve military-connected students.

The COVID-19 pandemic has brought much uncertainty and rapid change. To support you all during this challenging time, the DoDEA Grant Program Office in conjunction with our Evaluation and Technical Assistance (ETAC) Partners have made several changes regarding performance reporting for upcoming semester reports and the FY15 Final (Closeout) Performance Report. DoDEA Grant Reporting for 2020 is as follows: 
The Spring Performance Report as well as the Summer Performance Report is canceled for School Year 2019-2020; therefore, no Spring or Summer semester reports are due.  
For FY16 - FY19 Grantees, the next reports due will be your Annual Financial Report (SF 425) and Annual Performance Evaluation Report.  Both of these reports will be due via the ETAC website no later than October 31, 2020. The reporting website will be open for submissions on October 1 – 31, 2020. Please note we understand your districts may not have all the data measurements needed to report specific impact due to school closures.  We ask that you/your evaluator use the most currently available quantitative and qualitative data to complete the required performance reports. 
If you have any questions regarding reporting, please contact ETAC at info@dodeagrants.org.
