The Interstate Compact on Educational Opportunity for Military Children addresses perceived inequities facing schoolchildren of military parents when they are required to relocate across state lines. Specifically, it would allow the laws of the “sending” state to apply to transferring students from military families in the schools of the “receiving” state for such policies as graduation requirements, Advanced Placements (AP), and age of student enrollment.

The Interstate Compact on Educational Opportunity for Military Children is now in effect as ten states have now signed the agreement. The first ten states to adopt the compact are: Arizona, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, Kansas, Kentucky, Michigan, Missouri and Oklahoma. North Carolina became the eleventh state to adopt the Compact, with other states expected to take action when their states legislatures reconvene in 2009.
