1. What are my DoDEA options for my student?
There are two options for your student: Either you choose (1) in-person learning or (2) the virtual learning option. Students who are enrolled in the virtual option, regardless of location in the world will follow the established calendar for the existing DoDEA Virtual High school. For students this year, the virtual learning option will begin on August 24. Students enrolled in this option will follow the scheduled calendar for the Virtual School. This schedule may vary from the calendars for in-person instruction in our community schools. In-person instruction dates for schools are found at https://www.dodea.edu/schoolCalendars.cfm.

As per current DoD guidance, if an installation is in HPCON Charlie, schools will be closed to students, and we will begin the year in remote learning. For more info, visit the DoDEA Return to School website: https://www.dodea.edu/returntoschool.cfm .
