DoDEA Grants in PWCS

As a school division, PWCS was awarded grants from the Department of Defense Education Activity (DoDEA) in 2013, 2015, and 2019. These grants provide direct support to schools with a high percentage of military-connected students.

The 2019 Grant -- Operation STEP to CCR: Science, Technology, Engineering and Pathways to College and Career Readiness is currently being implemented at nine elementary schools: Antietam, Ashland, Henderson, Leesylvania, Marshall, Old Bridge, Pattie, Springwoods, and Westridge. The goal of this grant is to increase interest in STEM related career clusters for 4th and 5th grade military-connected students. The DoDEA grant provide support to students in these schools by assisting with technology and professional development needs, equipping teachers with the necessary tools for innovation within their classrooms to support STEM education and enrichment.
