  • DDESS History
    was often irregular and unsystematic The first of these schools was West Point Elementary School established prior to 1816 and authorized by Congress in 1921 to serve the children of personnel residing on the West Point Military Reservation who serve the United States Military Academy In 1950 Federal legislation alleviated this problem by consolidating the funding and operation of these installation run schools under the authority of Section 6 of Public Law No 81 874 This legislation enabled the Secretary of Education then the Commissioner of Education to operate and maintain what became known as Section 6 schools for children residing on Federal property if state laws prohibited tax revenues of the state or any political subdivision of the state to be expended for the free public education of children residing on Federal property education systems within the local communities were judged unable to provide a suitable free public education for the children residing on Federal property before a Section 6 school could be transferred to an Local Education Authority LEA In1981 the Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act Public Law No 97 35 transferred responsibility for the Section 6 schools to the Secretary of Defense For the first year after this transfer the military services funded the operation of the schools because budget authority had not been provided While budget authority of operation and maintenance of the Section 6 schools was granted to DoD in 1982 responsibility of the DoD school system was not centralized in the Office of the Deputy Assistant Secretary for Personnel Support Families and Education until 1990 In 1994 Public Law No 103 337 replaced Section 6 legislation which was repealed that year and renamed the school system the Department of Defense Domestic Dependent Elementary and Secondary Schools DDESS The Section 6 DDESS system has expanded and contracted over the years After their initial consolidation in 1950 schools were added to the system as a result of the racial integration of the military Establishing these Section 6 schools allowed military children to attend integrated schools where local schools remained segregated Since that time the trend has been for Section 6 schools to transfer to LEAs largely as a result of pressure from the U S Department of Education on states and localities to acknowledge responsibility for the education of military dependents population growth near installations the integration of the public schools Thus while at one point there were about 100 installations with Section 6 schools by the early 1970s most of these schools had been transferred to LEAs The last transfer of a Section 6 school occurred in 1973 Three other Section 6 DDESS school systems have closed since then as a result of installation closures Those DDESS schools that remain tend to be in locations where a transfer is difficult to accomplish One prior transfer effort is of particular note In the early 1950s the DDESS schools on the Marine Corps base at Quantico Virginia were scheduled to be transferred to an LEA Strong opposition to
