The Department of Defense, in collaboration with the National Center for Interstate Compacts and the Council of State Governments has developed an interstate compact that addresses the educational transition issues of children of military families. The Interstate Compact on Educational Opportunity for Military Children is a law that has been adopted by all 50 states and Department of Defense Educational Activity (DoDEA schools). The law applies to the receiving state. To exercise provisions, parents must be on active military orders. This does not extend to Department of Defense (DoD) civilians or DoD contractors.
For more information visit the U.S. Department of Defense Education Activity site.
