Interstate Compact on Educational Opportunity for Military Children
The Interstate Compact on Educational Opportunity for Military Children (Military Compact) exists to strengthen transitions and close educational gaps as military families and their children move to a new school district in another state. Texas has been a member of the Military Interstate Children’s Compact Commission (MIC3) since 2009. As of 2014, all 50 states, including the District of Columbia, have joined the Military Compact.
The Military Compact applies to Active-Duty Service Members, National Guard, Reserve, Veterans medically discharged or retired for one year, and members who die on active duty.
The Military Compact is focused on the following key topics:
- Educational records and enrollment
- Course and program placement and attendance
- Eligibility (student enrollment and extracurricular participation)
