Interstate Compact on Educational Opportunity for Military Children (MIC3)

The Military Interstate Compact (MIC3) provides for the uniform treatment of military children transferring between school districts and states. The Compact seeks to make transition easier so military connected children are afforded the same opportunities for educational success as other children and are not penalized or delayed in achieving their educational goals. Fifty (50) states and the District of Columbia have adopted the MIC3.
