Summary of Information Collection
The primary objective of the information collection is to determine that DoDEA has all the information it requires to make available a quality education, from prekindergarten through grade 12, for the eligible dependents of the Department of Defense (DoD) military and civilian personnel on official assignments. The DoDEA Form 600 secures data about each sponsor who enrolls a child in a DoDEA school to determine the child's eligibility for enrollment. Eligibility for enrollment depends on whether the sponsor is a member of the Armed Forces or a civilian employee of the DoD, and which component thereof (Armed Forces or DoD) he or she is a member; or is an employee of another Federal Agency; or is a DoD contractor; or whether the sponsor is a U.S. citizen or a foreign national; and whether the sponsor is assigned overseas or to an military installation in the U.S. Eligibility also depends on whether the student is a dependent of a member of the Armed Forces or of the Federal Government who is authorized Federally funded transportation to an overseas assignment, or is authorized residence on a domestic U.S. military installation. The DoDEA Form 600 also secures information about each enrolled student to ensure that DoDEA makes available the appropriate classrooms, staffing, and supportive services. The data collected on the DoDEA Form 600, “DoDEA Student Registration,” is covered by the DoDEA System of Records Notice DoDEA 26 available at: http://privacy.defense.gov/notices/osd/DODEA26.shtml, “Department of Defense Education Activity Dependent Children's School Program Files.” The paper forms and electronic data systems containing the sponsor and dependent personally identifying information are secured in accordance with the requirements of Federal law and implementing DoD regulations.Start Signature
