The Interstate Compact on Educational Opportunity for Military Children addresses the needs of military students dealing with many transitions during their lifetime. Due to the mobile nature of military life, the military child moves an average of 6-9 times between kindergarten and 12th grade.
All 50 states have adopted the Interstate Compact. To see specific state agreements click here
