Collaborating with DoDEA

Since 2015, the Charles A. Dana Center has worked with the U.S. Department of Defense Education Activity (DoDEA) to advance mathematics education for children of U.S. military families around the globe.

The goal of this collaboration is to build the capacity of teachers, school-level leaders, and above-school-level leaders to ensure that all students, prekindergarten through grade 12, meet or exceed the expectations of DoDEA’s College and Career Ready Standards for Mathematics (CCRSM).

Toward this goal, the Dana Center provides professional learning for teachers and administrators to deliver consistent, high-quality math instruction to children of U.S. military families in more than a dozen countries around the globe.

Math Around the World

The scope and scale of this initiative require that the Dana Center recruit and prepare nearly 200 International Facilitation Fellows (IFF) annually. Fellows are selected through a national competitive process.

Each year, the Dana Center IFF team facilitates more than 100 two-day training sessions to over 3,600 DoDEA educators and administrators in 167 schools across 14 countries, including Japan, Italy, Spain, South Korea, and Bahrain. We have reached 60,500 students of military families in 2018 alone and supported more than 75,000 students since 2015.

Long-Term Collaborations Yield Strong Results
