Speak Up!

DoDEA is participating for the First Time Ever as a system in the annual nationwide Speak Up Survey administered by Project Tomorrow! This survey has been taken by over 3 million students in 2,400 school districts across the Nation since 2003. While this is entirely voluntary, parents, students, teachers and administrators are encouraged to take the survey between now and December 19, 2014. Data from the survey will allow DoDEA to make better technology decisions in many areas, such as how we resource our classrooms and type of professional development teachers want. This is your opportunity to Speak Up!
