Kansas Council on the Interstate Compact on Educational Opportunity for Military Children

April is Month of the Military Child  Press Release from MIC3
"Purple Up! for Military Kids" to show your support.

Children of active-duty military personnel encounter many challenges, including school enrollment, eligibility, placement and graduation due to frequent relocations in service to our country. The Interstate Compact on Educational Opportunity for Military Children provides uniform treatment of children in military families transferring between school districts and states. The Compact was developed by the Council of State Governments' National Center for Interstate Compacts, the Department of Defense, national associations, federal and state officials, departments of education, school administrators and military families and activated in July 2008. Kansas was the 1st state to enter into the compact and in January 2015, the Compact has been adopted by all 50 states and the District of Columbia.

The Compact was formed to assist in addressing the transitional issues of military children as they transfer from one school system to another. The Compact provides for an Interstate Commission to draft and enforce rules and provide general oversight. Note: The Compact applies to public schools only.
