REASONABLE ACCOMOD./VIRTUAL SCHOOL INFO FOR THOSE ON AUTHORIZED DEPARTUREposted July 21, 2020
In response to several inquiries, FEA wants to point out that if you are an Overseas employee currently on Authorized Departure and wish to be considered for assignment to DoDEA Virtual Schools (DVS) and/or to request a Reasonable Accommodation, it is management's position that you can and must apply for each of those programs separately. Authorized Departure does not equate to having a Reasonable Accommodation, it is a completely separate process. You should apply for a Reasonable Accommodation and/or DVS, if you are interested, to make sure you are considered and to cover you if/when your Authorized Departure expires. Applications for the Virtual Schools must be submitted by July 28 and Reasonable Accommodation requests should be made as quickly as possible.
