HOW TO GET INVOLVED

There are many opportunities to get involved at Spangdahlem. See below for just a few of the opportunities available:

If civilians are interested, please contact the School Liaison Office or the specific school you are interested in volunteering at.

The schools are always looking for substitutes. You do not need a college degree—only a high school diploma. Please apply at USAjobs.gov. Note: The pay for Spangdahlem is much higher than the generic pay listed on the substitute listing (as of 8/23 it is $146 per day). 

Some jobs in the schools such as an Educational Aide or a Library Technician are posted at USAjobs.gov.  Search: Spangdahlem for listings in the schools.

Civilians interested in becoming a teacher may apply at DoDEA.edu

The School Advisory Committees (SAC) make recommendations and advise the principals on school policy, instructional programs, resource allocation, and student services. The SAC is an important venue for parent input regarding school matters.

Installation Advisory Committee (IAC) serves as the advisory group to the DODEA District Superintendent and Installation Commander on issues concerning our schools and our children, such as school meals, transportation, safety & security, medical services, and installation policies related to dependent education.

Please note: You do not have to be a member of the SAC or IAC to participate in either meeting. Attendance is highly encouraged regardless of membership. Contact your child’s school or the SLO for more information on upcoming meeting dates.
