School Districts Receive DoDEA Partnership Grants
On July 9, Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel announced that 15 public school districts serving 23 military installations across the country have been selected to receive grants through the Department of Defense Education Activity (DoDEA) Educational Partnership. The Partnership was created to support public school districts educating large numbers of military-connected students. The winning school districts will use the grants, which total nearly $20 million, to fund science, technology, engineering, mathematics and foreign language programs.
The DoDEA Educational Partnership Grant Program is open to school districts with a military dependent student population of at least five percent; participating schools must have a military dependent student population of at least 15 percent. Since its inception in 2009, the program has awarded 186 grants, totaling more than $220 million and reaching more than 750,000 students.
