 The Military Interstate Compact

The Interstate Compact on Educational Opportunity for Military Children is an agreement among states

to alleviate many of the school transition problems military families encounter. States agree to address

specific school transition issues in a consistent way and minimize school disruptions for military children

transferring from one state school system to another. It’s up to the states to work together to resolve

specific transition issues for individual students. The regulations and expectations of the Compact also

apply to students transferring to, from or between Department of Defense Education Activity schools.

As of August 2014, all 50 states and the District of Columbia have passed legislation to become members

of the Compact, which consists of general policies in four key areas:

eligibility, enrollment, placement and graduation.
