The Department of Defense Education Activity (DoDEA) is a field activity of the Office of the Secretary of Defense. DoDEA's mission is to plan, direct, coordinate, and manage the education programs for eligible dependents of U.S. military personnel and civilian personnel of the Department of Defense. DoDEA is globally positioned, operating 164 accredited schools in 8 districts located in 11 foreign countries, 7 states, Guam, and Puerto Rico. DoDEA employs approximately 15,000 employees who serve more than 71,000 children of active duty military and DoD civilian families. DoDEA is committed to ensuring that all school-aged children of military families are provided a world-class education that prepares them for postsecondary education and/or career success and to be leading contributors in their communities as well as in our 21st century globalized society.
BACKGROUND & GOALS
The client wanted to create a website that provided a centralized location for military-connected school districts who had been awarded DoDEA grants and those who were grant seekers to find information about grant tools and resources.
We created a website where users could search for the schools that were awarded grants by DoDEA in the last 5 years. All the registered members were also provided with a private forum where they could discuss grant related issues.
DoDEA was extremely pleased with the website and we continue to support the agency in adding more features.
