DoD Dependent Schools; Eligibility Requirements

AGENCY:

DoD, DoDDS.

ACTION:

Notice.

On September 8, 2000, the Assistant Secretary of Defense for Force Management Policy (ASD(FMP)), signed a memorandum to the Interim Director, Department of Defense Education Activity (DoDEA), changing DoD Directive 1342.12 "Eligibility Requirements for Education of Minor Departments in Overseas Areas," dated July 8, 1982.

The change designates for enrollment on a space-available, tuition-free basis the class of dependents of NATO forces assigned to the NATO site at Larissa, Greece, excluding the host nation. This class waiver will be effective for school years 2000-2001 and 2001-2002, to the extent space is available, in order to allow sufficient time for the NATO command to explore other education options. This waiver will permit the enrollment of approximately 30 dependents of NATO forces. No Department of Defense (DoD) funds may be used to hire additional English as a Second Language instructors. Either the NATO forces or the NATO families must ensure the students are prepared for English language instruction.
