News from DoDEA Director Tom Brady

DoDEA Community Strategic Plan (CSP) Volume II

This volume focuses our school system on two strategic imperatives essential for improving the academic achievement of our students. It provides the concept for our #1 priority - the establishment of a standards-based educational system that aligns our curriculum, instruction,
and assessments to our new, more rigorous academic standards; and our 2nd priority - the establishment of the organizational capacity required to operate more effectively/efficiently and grow into one of our nation's best unified school systems.  I believe our success in achieving the desired end state for each priority initiative hinges on three factors:  1) our steadfast, long-term commitment to the implementation process; 2) our ability to implement the plans in a collegial, collaborative manner; and 3) the ability of our leaders to maintain the organization's focus and block distractions.  I have every confidence we will do so.
