50-state milestone reached on behalf of military children

All 50 states have now adopted a military family-friendly policy that attempts to ease transitions for military children, who experience frequent moves because of their parent's service.

The Interstate Compact on Educational Opportunity for Military Children aims to bring consistency to a number of policies, including attendance, enrollment, graduation and extracurricular activities for military children, who move an average of three times more frequently when compared to their non-military peers, according to Military K-12 Partners.

New York became the 50th state to adopt the compact in August. Visit the Military Interstate Children's Compact Commission provides legislation details and contacts for its implementation in your state.
