$2.5 Million Grant Awarded to OUSD

A $2.5 million grant for use in promoting STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) has been awarded to OUSD by the Department of Defense (DoDEA) as part of its Education Activity Educational Partnership program. 

“The DoD is committed to ensuring that all children of military families have access to quality educational opportunities,” said Kathleen Facon, who serves as chief of the group’s Educational Partnership Program.

OUSD is one of only 25 military-connected public school districts to receive the grant, which aims to strengthen family and school community relationships and enhance the achievements of military students.
