SCHOOL REGISTRATION for DoDEA Europe Schools Families stationed in Europe typically send their children to the Department of Defense Education Activity Schools. DoDEA Eligibility Information Registration Step One – Online Pre-Registration assists schools with preparing for your child. Please complete this as soon as possible. Online Pre-Registration User Guide & FAQs Registration Step Two – Registration is completed at the school. Please allow for a full day following registration before your child will begin class. Some schools will allow registration prior to arrival via email. If your installation has multiple schools for your child’s grade you may need to secure housing information to be certain of your zoned school prior to completing registration. Contact your School Liaison Officer for more information. Be aware that in some locations when you first arrive your child may temporarily attend the school that is zoned for your Temporary Billeting/Quarters. When you know where you will be living (on or off base), there is a possibility that your child could be moved to another school, unless you live in the same zoned area. Again: CONTACT your School Liaison Officer for assistance and clarification. In some instances, especially for high school students, it is necessary to meet with the school guidance counselor to select courses prior to starting school. You can access a list of courses available with descriptions on the school websites. Contact the school to set up an appointment with a counselor. Access your post SLO website to find out which schools are available in your location.
