So my spouse is reaching the point where his enlistment will be up and he wants to get out. If we live overseas and I currently work for DoDD in Japan (as a local hire), what are my options to pick up housing? We don't want to move back stateside and I love my job, but I know I will have to move to get rights. Could I also pick up rights through a promotion to an ISS position or an assistant principal in a different district? (I know I wouldn't get rights if I was promoted within my current area). Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
haha There have been a lot of threads about this issue on the DoD FB page. The gist of it seems to be that barring an admin directed transfer of some type (transfer, promotion, excess and reassignment, etc.) outside of your current area then you would have to resign (or possibly LWOP), return to the states and be hired again. There was some disagreement...See More

Mary You can apply in EAS for DDESS positions including Puerto Rico and Guam (not completely sure about Guam). You can try for the transfer round or management directed move. I think those are your only options for becoming the sponsor with LQA.

em1427 Thank you so much for your feedback! So my next question would getting an ISS or AP position (to a new district or area) considered management redirected? I am considering applying for DDESS for next school year too, specifically Guam. Thanks again for your insight!

haha I believe so but you should check with HR to confirm and see what other details may or may not affect the outcome.

Keep in mind (which you probably already know) that Guam would not generally provide you with LQA, unless/until you were hired/transferred into a different overseas location.
