Interstate Compact on Educational Opportunities for Military Children

Elena McShane
MCAS Yuma School Liaison Officer

The Interstate Compact on Educational Opportunities for Military Children directs the governor of Arizona to enter into a compact with other states to remove barriers to educational success that are imposed on children of military families (military children) because of frequent moves and deployment of parents.  Forty-three States belong to this Compact.

The Interstate Compact enacts the following provisions:

  • Facilitates the timely enrollment of military children because of difficulties in the transfer of education records from a previous school district or because of variations in entrance or age requirements.
  • Facilitates the student placement process by allowing waivers to ensure that military children are not disadvantaged by variations in attendance requirements, scheduling, grading, course content or assessment.
  • Streamlines qualifications and eligibility for enrollment, educational programs and participation in extracurricular programs for military children.
  • Facilitates the on-time graduation of military children.
  • Promotes flexibility and cooperation among the educational system, military parents, and military children to achieve educational success for the student.

**Note- The compact applies to public schools only
