Let's Help Smooth the Transition: Ease the challenges that military-connected students face due to transitions and deployments.
The Interstate Compact on Educational Opportunity for Military Children, commonly referred to as "the Compact," helps to ensure that the challenges faced by military-connected students are being met nationwide.
Established in 2008, the Military Interstate Children's Compact Commission oversees the Compact, and member states agree to address the challenges of military-connected children and their frequent relocations. It allows for uniform treatment as military children transfer between school districts and states.
