DODEA Grant - Supporting Our Students
In August 2016, Schertz-Cibolo-Universal City received a five year/$1.5 million dollar grant from the US Department of Defense Education Activity (DODEA) to support our military connected students in grades 7-12.
SCUC-ISD will successfully meet two parallel goals in this project: (1) increase the level of social and emotional supports for military dependent students at Dobie and Ray D. Corbett Junior High Schools and (2) increase the level of social and emotional supports for military dependent students at Byron P. Steele and Samuel Clemens High Schools. The goals will be achieved through establishing peer-to-peer support programs and the provision of two full-time military transition consultants based in the schools.
Ms. Dee Ann Thomas is the DODEA Project Director responsible for the oversight and implementation of this grant and serves as a liaison for the campuses and Joint Base San Antonio. Working with the district, DODEA, the installation School Liaison Offices, this position is a primary resource for all military-connected families.
