Welcome to ACDE!

The Advisory Council on Dependents’ Education (ACDE) provides insight, perspectives, expertise and advice to the Director of the Department of Defense Education Activity (DoDEA) on the full spectrum of policies for operation of the defense dependents’ education system with respect to the curriculum selection, administration, and operation of the system. The Council uses formal advisory committee meetings, webinars, web conferences, working groups, and other methods to accomplish its goals, consistent with the requirements of the Federal Advisory Committee Act (FACA).

DoDEA is in the process of updating Council membership. A list of current ACDE members may be found under the About Us section of this website. New members will be added once selected. The next ACDE meeting is tentatively scheduled for December 2013. Please send any comments or questions to acde@hq.dodea.edu.
