NC-Fort Bragg District Curriculum & Standards
In keeping with our mission to educate, engage, and empower each student to succeed in a dynamic world the DoDEA Curriculum Content Standards and the Community Strategic Plan (CSP) provide the framework for academic excellence.
The NC-Fort Bragg district does not provide all grade level programs. Dependent students living on the military installations attend schools operated by the Local Education Agency in the civilian community for grade levels not offered by DDESS.
We offer a half-day Pre-K program to children who reside on post and who will be four years old on or before September 1, of the current year.
Pre-K teachers utilize a student-centered approach and encourage children to develop their abilities as they work in areas focused on computer skills, art activities, creative play, and academic readiness.
The purpose of special education is to enable students to successfully develop to their fullest potential by providing a free appropriate public education in compliance with the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) as implemented by DoD Instruction 1342.12, "Provision of Early Intervention and Special Education Services to Eligible DoD Dependents."
Special education and related services are available to eligible students, ages 3 through 21 years of age. To be eligible for special education:
- The child must have an identified disability;
- The disability must adversely (negatively) affect the child's educational performance; and
- The child must require a specially designed instructional program.
Note: Students with a disability who are not found eligible for special education and related services may receive reasonable accommodations and modifications under DoDEA Policy Memorandum: Nondiscrimination on the Basis of Disability in a DoDEA Dependent Educational Programs and Activities.

Homebound instruction can be provided to those medically disabled students who cannot attend school, due to confinement to a hospital or home for treatment or convalescence for an extended period of time, usually 3 weeks or more. (Parents are encouraged to request work from the student's teacher for shorter periods of school absence).
Sponsors of student requesting Homebound Instruction must submit a completed Physician's Request. The Physician's Request will describe the nature and extent of the illness, any physical or psychological limitations present, and the anticipated length of time the student is expected to be incapacitated. The Physician's Request must be reviewed and resubmitted by the physician at the beginning of each school semester if the need for Homebound instruction continues.
Eligible students will be provided instruction based upon individual needs from 3 to 5 hours per week, unless prohibited by impairment. Recipients of Homebound Instruction are considered to be in attendance and their work assignments will be used in consideration of classroom grades and promotion.
For students who have been found eligible for Special Education services, the IEP Committee will determine the appropriate length and amount of service based on the individual student's needs.
Requests for Homebound Instruction are made through the principal's office.
Inquiry regarding Homebound Services may be directed to the Instructional System Specialist for Student Services:
