DODEA curriculum standards

by Ruth Ploeger, Army Region School Liaison Officer/Transition Support Specialist

A great way to be a help and support to your children is to know what they are studying in schools. You can access grade-by-grade curriculum standards for DODEA schools online. DODEA is phasing in College and Career Readiness Standards, which include Common Core State Standards. DODEA has a well structured and phased approach to making this change. Special training for teachers and administrators is part of the planning and preparation process.

Moving to Common Core standards for all U.S. students benefits our military children who, with each PCS, move in and out of various curriculum standards sometimes resulting in academic or promotional difficulties. Common standards are in part designed to make those school transitions easier for our kids.

For more information, download a copy of the DODEA College and Career Ready e-book, contact your local SLO, or visit Europe Family and MWR's website for an Inbound Student Handbook.
