CYS continues to offer childcare based on the DOD Priority List -- currently placing all Single/Dual AD military (1C) and as many AD with working spouse (1D) as possible. CYS continues to evaluate incoming families at the 1C priority category.

This will mostly affect DOD civilians (1E), as we do not project to have space available for care for families in that category.
