DoDEA Education Partnership and Resources Division

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. Goals of PART include 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 through the operation of the DoDEA Grant Program.

The Evaluation Technical Assistance Center

The U.S. Department of Defense Education Activity (DoDEA) has contracted with Safal Partners to provide the DoDEA Education Partnership and Resources Branch with technical assistance and resources in grant monitoring, program accountability reporting, and evaluation. The Evaluation Technical Assistance Center’s (ETAC) online resource center is dedicated to helping grantees build their evaluation and reporting capacity. The ETAC website and reporting portal will provide access to online resources and give grantees access to evaluation and education experts to assist as challenges are encountered or resources are needed to support their grant strategies and goals. ETAC expands the reach of the grant program by creating award-winning publications for educators that include portable, successful strategies to support military-connected youth.
