1 What’s Happening in DoDDS Changes Programs Challenges & Opportunities Dr. Nancy Bresell Director, DoDDS-E

2 DoDDS-E Commitment Provide high quality school programs in all DoDDS communities Ensure that staff, parents, and students have confidence in the security of their school Limit disruptions caused by transformation. ◦ Ensure consistent staff resources at all schools ◦ Provide school and district leadership with current and accurate transformation information available.

3 What’s Happening in DoDEA 21 st Century Schools initiative: ◦ Multi-year plan to transform teaching and learning in all DoDEA schools ◦ DoDEA construction and facilities project will use 21st century design principles: Facility as Teaching Tool Student Centered Education Aesthetics Curriculum and Instruction Flexibility of the Learning Environment Outdoor Learning Opportunities Technology Community Use Sustainability Health and Wellness Safety and Security

4 21 st Century “neighborhood” Hierarchy of spaces supporting differentiated learning Flexibility is key! Facility & Furnishings which support multiple modalities and multidisciplinary teaching

5 Visual transparency to promote connectivity to each other and the environment as well as security Integrated technology to prepare students for an ever changing modern world Ease of use by the end user – student & faculty Facility as a teaching tool – visually displayed building systems & integrated controls Aesthetic environments – stimulating spaces, very height and scale 21 st Century “neighborhood”

6 What’s Happening in DoDEA DoDEA Graduation Requirements ◦ Students who take mathematics every year in high school and who take higher levels of mathematics have a greater likelihood of being college and career ready for the 21 st century ◦ DoDEA is increasing the rigor of secondary education and preparing DoDEA students for success after graduation. ◦ Starting with the freshman class (9th Grade) in SY 12-13DoDEA has increased math graduation requirements from 3 to 4 credits ◦ Algebra II will be a graduation requirement beginning with the Freshman Class in SY 13-14 ◦ Four new courses starting SY 12-13  Foundations of Algebraic Modeling  Advanced Functions and Modeling  Engineering Applications  Financial Literacy

7 STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) DoDEA’s STEM initiative is designed to attract and retain all students in STEM fields with a focus on underserved and female populations. DoDEA launched a STEM event in Spring 2012 utilizing STEM professionals as mentors in local sites globally to heighten awareness of STEM careers and initiate on- going mentorships with STEM experts Four STEM-related courses were introduced in SY11- 12: Green Technology Engineering, Gaming Technology Engineering, Biotechnology Engineering, and Robotics Engineering.

8 What’s Happening in DoDEA Digital Learning Environment ◦ System-wide goal of having a laptop, tablet, or other mobile device in the hands of every student ◦ Use technology in the instructional process. ◦ Increasing bandwidth and ◦ Making all of our campuses wireless. Common Core State Standards ◦ State-led effort coordinated by the National Governors Association Center for Best Practices and the Council of Chief State School Officers (CCSSO). ◦ Will replace the DoDEA developed curriculum standards in Math and English Language Arts. ◦ Help mitigate the issues military children face when transitioning

9 What’s Happening in DoDEA DoDEA Community Strategic Plan GOAL 1 – STUDENT EXCELLENCE: Challenge each student to maximize his or her potential and to excel academically, socially, emotionally, and physically for life, college, and career readiness GOAL 2 – SCHOOL EXCELLENCE: Develop and sustain each school to be high-performing within an environment of innovation, collaboration, continuous renewal, and caring relationships.

16 DoDDS-E Challenges: Community/School Closures 36 schools will be affected by transformation, 15 will close Transformation actions are still fluid and total population levels in many communities are undefined DoDDS anticipates placement requirements in June 2013 for: ◦ 250 teachers ◦ 13 school administrators ◦ 10 GS employees ◦ 5 LNs

17 DoDDS-E Challenges: MILCON & Facility Replacment DoDEA ◦ Replace or renovate over 130 schools within the next 7 years ◦ Eliminate all Q-4 (failing) and Q-3 (poor) schools worldwide In Europe: ◦ Replace or renovate 40+ schools within the next 7 years ◦ Identify end-state installations and project enrollments to design new schools appropriately ◦ Incorporate Sustainable Design and Green Building Systems ◦ Improve student safety and security ◦ Increase access for children with disabilities ◦ Incorporate 21st Century School Design

19 DoDDS-E Challenges Student Achievement DoDEA Student Achievement Measures: ◦ TerraNova ◦ NAEP ◦ SAT ◦ Advanced Placement 19

20 Student Achievement TerraNova 2009-2012 TerraNova 2009 -2012: DoDEA scores above the national average in Reading, Language, Math, Science, and Social Studies Math performance is lowest of all subject areas There is steady gain over time and across the board Scores increased in 84% of 45 grade/subject combinations Grades 3 and 4 show the lowest scores and highest gains White students score substantially higher than African- American and Hispanic students DoDEA’s CSP goal of “less that 7% scoring in bottom quarter” is met in Reading, Language Social Studies. DoDEA’s CSP goal of “75% or more scoring in top two quarters” is met in Social Studies

21 Student Achievement SAT 2008-2012 DoDDS-Europe students outperformed DoDEA in all SAT content areas: Reading, Math, and Writing. DoDEA outperforms the nation in Reading and Writing DoDEA performs below national average in Math Performance show little variance over time Four out of ten test takers in DoDEA and the nation meet the College Readiness Benchmark of 1550 White students score higher than African-American and Hispanic students DoDEA’s African-American and Hispanic students outperform their national peers DoDEA’s participation rate (74%) continues to be higher than the nation’s rate (52%) 21

22 Percentage of DoDEA AP Exams with Scores of 3 or Higher By Student Group From 2008 To 2011 National results show 58% of AP Exams with scores of 3 or Higher, with little change over four years. DoDEA’s percentage of AP Exams Scoring 3 or Higher has risen from 44% to 52%. All DoDEA’s Ethnic Groups increased the percent of AP Exams with scores of 3 or higher (by 5% to 16%). DoDEA ‘s Hispanic group showed the highest increase from 35% to 51% of AP exams with 3 or higher scores. DoDEA’s percentage of AP exams with score of 3 or higher increased from 25% to 30% for African Americans, 41% to 47% for Asians, and 51% to 59% for the White group. 22


24 DoDDS-E students scored higher -with a score of “3” or better - than DoDEA on AP exams in 2012. DoDDS-E students had fewer scores of below “3” than DoDEA on AP exams in 2012. AP Summary

25 Student Achievement: Summary Terra Nova – Annual (2011 data) Percentage of students above the national average was 73% in Social Studies, 71% in Reading and Science, 70% in English/Language Arts, 65% in Math across grades levels Math scores have been consistently lower than other subjects for the past five years across grades 3-11 White students outperform Blacks and Hispanics in all subjects – gaps range from 10% in Reading to 25% in Science across grade levels Installation level data indicate no correlation between deployment and achievement National Assessment of Education Progress – (NAEP) – Biennial (2009 & 2011) DoDEA ranks in the top ten states in Reading (grades 4, 8) and in Science (grade 8) DoDEA ranks 20 th in 4 th grade and 10 th in 8 th grade Math (tied with 13 other states in both grades) DoDEA’s Black/White achievement gap is smaller than the national average – decreased over the past decade SAT Exams (2007 – 2011 trend) Math – 498 – 495 (national avg. 514 – 514) Reading – 509 – 503 (national avg. 501 – 497) Writing – 492 – 489 (national avg. 493 – 489)White students outperform Black and Hispanic students DoDEA Black and Hispanic students outperform their national peers in Reading and Writing AP Exams Participation rates have increased from 16% to 19% over the past 3 years Percentage of AP exams resulting in a score of 3 or above has increased (44%-49% over past 3 years) Achievement gaps exist; 54% of Whites scored 3 or above vs. 28% of Blacks and 45% of Hispanics 25

26 DoDDS-E Challenges Expansion of Remote Locations (NDSP) Non DoD Schools Program  2000 students  260 schools  90 countries  Throughout Europe, Africa and Asia  Governing Policies: ◦ Strom Thurmond Act of 1998 ◦ Provides sponsors freedom of choice on school selection when a DoD School is not available
