Students

DoDEA provides a variety of student services and activities.

School Counseling Services

School counselors are strategically positioned to help students in developing strategies to deal with educational, personal, and social challenges that may interfere with the educational process. To respond to the challenges of the DoDEA Strategic Plan, DoDEA is implementing a Competency-Based Counseling Program (CBCP) under the authority of DS 2946.1 in all schools. To meet the needs of all students today and tomorrow, the CBCP provides a balance of direct and indirect services and activities.

Psychology Services

We provide a range of services for the benefit of students and families. These consist of direct and indirect services that involve the entire educational system, including the students, families, teachers, counselors, administrators, other school personnel, community agencies, and a variety of others. The primary intent of school psychological services is to promote mental and physical wellness and facilitate learning of students. School Psychologists collaborate with administrators and other school personnel in designing and providing services to address the academic,career, and social/personal development of students. The core services of the school psychologist include:individual psychological counseling with students; group counseling/skill development; consultation with parents, school staff, and community agencies; participation on the Student Support Team which helps develop interventions for at-risk students; psychological/educational assessment; serving on the special education Case Study Committee and providing IEP services when needed; providing training activities to school staff and parents; and assisting with program development, research, and evaluation.

School Nurse

The school nurse serves as the health service expert, providing health care to students/staff and implementing interventions that addresses both actual and potential health and safety conditions. The school nurse collaborates with the school administrator to promote the health and academic success of students and serves as the liaison between the school, community, and health care systems. This collaborative effort creates opportunities to build capacity for self-care, resilience, and learning.

  • The school nurse’s responsibilities include:
  • Providing leadership in promoting personal and environmental health and safety by managing communicable diseases, monitoring immunizations, providing consultation and health-related education to students and staff to promote school health and academic success;
  • Providing quality health care and intervening with actual and potential health problems through health screenings, health assessments and nursing interventions, and the development of healthcare and emergency care plans to enable students to safely and fully participate in school;
  • Providing case management services to direct care for students with chronic health conditions, to ensure their safety, and to increase their access to the educational program; and
  • Collaborating with school and community-based resources to reduce health-related barriers to student learning, improve access to healthcare, and develop school-community partnerships to support academic achievement and student success.
