The goal of the compact is to replace the widely varying policies affecting transitioning military students. The compact leverages consistency: It uses a comprehensive approach that provides a consistent policy in every school district and in every state that chooses to join.
The compact addresses key educational transition issues encountered by military families including enrollment, placement, attendance, eligibility and graduation.
Children of active duty members of the uniformed services, National Guard and Reserve on active duty orders, and members or veterans who are medically discharged or retired for one year are eligible for assistance under the compact
Note: The compact applies to public schools only.
