Department of Defense Education Activity Accountability Report: Building Futures in a Global Community, 1995-1996.
Department of Defense Education Activity, Arlington, VA.
This report is part of a two-volume publication that outlines the Department of Defense Education Activity (DoDEA) 5-year plan. The plan was developed in 1995 to transform education in DoD schools and is based on the vision that the DoDEA will be a learner-centered organization, unbound by traditional school concepts of time, location, and age requirements, as well as recognized for its ability to provide students with the knowledge and high-level skills required for success in a global community. The report offers a glimpse of DoDEA during the preliminary phase of its transformation process; the data presented here will be used to create a baseline to compare future results. The publication provides information on students by grade and ethnicity, on instructional staff, on the location of DoD schools, on 10 strategic goals, on students' school readiness, on student achievement and citizenship, on mathematics and science achievement, on the results of comprehensive tests, on the results of standardized and achievement tests, on teacher education and professional development, on parental participation, on accountability, and on organizational development. In addition to the 10 education goals, also identified are a number of benchmarks that were developed to define discrete, measurable performance criteria for each of the goals. (RJM)
