All curricula in DODEA are research-based and predicated on how children learn best. The DODEA curriculum standards are written in accord with the newest national standards, and teachers follow the DODEA standards to provide a seamless curriculum environment for students. Whether they are overseas or stateside, DODEA students use the same books, materials and technology to ensure uniform advantages and care.
Some of the newest innovative teaching techniques used at Fort Campbell schools involve learning that is student-based rather than teacher-directed. Students work in cooperative learning groups, develop real-life projects and use authentic assessments. Using resources other than textbooks alone is emphasized — from personal experiences to researching on the Internet.
Fort Campbell is committed to providing a technology-rich educational environment for students. All classrooms have Internet capabilities and an ample supply of computers, printers and software, and students and teachers have email capabilities.
Computer labs are available in each school and all libraries are equipped with multimedia computers and resources. Both middle schools include multimedia communication classes and the high school offers myriad high-tech classes available in such subjects as computer animation, engineering and more.
Breakfast is available to all school students each morning before school begins. A healthy lunch is served daily, with a variety of choices available to all students. Applications for free or reduced-price meals can be obtained online.
Special Education Services are available for children ages 3 to 21 years who are identified as having an educational disability or developmental delay. To receive these services, a child must be assessed by a multidisciplinary team, which will include special educators and the child’s parents. This team is known as the Case Study Committee (CSC).
Related services, such as speech and language services, occupational therapy services or physical therapy services are also available based on individual needs as determined by the CSC.
After eligibility for special education is affirmed by the CSC, an Individual Educational Program (IEP) is developed by the team. This document includes goals and objectives appropriate for the child to learn. At this time, service providers will also set both learning objectives and the required weekly time commitment; both will be included in the IEP document.
Special education locations are individually determined by the CSC. This decision is made based upon the nature and severity of the child’s educational needs. For more information about special education services or if you suspect your child may have a disability or delay, contact the special education coordinator.
