    New DoDEA One-Pager Offers Resources to Support Military-Connected Children 

    Nearly one million K-12 students enrolled in public education are considered military-connected. Often, these students change schools every few years because they are the dependent of an active-duty service member. 

    While these multiple education transitions offer great opportunities for learning beyond the traditional classroom setting, they also present challenges for student social-emotional wellbeing and educational continuity.  

    To help support work with and for mobile military-connected students, the Department of Defense Education Activity Partnership Division has released a one-pager outlining key resources available.
