Sequestration Affects Military Child Services

Posted:

While Department of Defense schools are NOT exempt from civilian furloughs, DoD insists they will work to provide school children with a full year of quality education and ensure each school maintains its accreditation.

DoD has not announced its plan for school level furloughs for 2014.

Schools for Military Children

In other planned budget sequestration of civilian programs, military families will also be hurt by cuts to civilian schools.

Under sequestration, federal education programs face cuts of $106 million in Impact Aid money that supports civilian schools educating military kids; $1 billion in special education programs; $140 million in student financial aid; and $1.3 billion in Title I funding that helps many schools attended by military children.

Cuts to Child Development Centers?

The impact on Child Development Centers (CDC) and Child and Youth Services is unclear.

Some centers are staffed by Non-appropriated fund (NAF) workers who will not be affected by furloughs.

Others are staffed by civilian government employees and some by a mixture of both types. Centers staffed by DoD civilians will be affected by furloughs. Decisions on cutbacks on hours or services will be made locally.
