Military Interstate Children’s Compact Commission (MIC3):

The Compact addresses the educational challenges military-connected children face due to their frequent relocations. It allows for uniform treatment of military-connected students when they transfer to new school districts between states. All 50 states and the District of Columbia have adopted the Compact through legislation. Each state appoints a Commissioner responsible for the administration and management of the state’s participation in the Compact. The state’s Commissioner also collaborates with the National Office and the full Commission to enact necessary rules related to the provisions of the Compact. The Compact calls for the development of State Councils in each member state. Each State Council may be tasked with development of policy concerning operations and procedures of the compact within their state.

Students covered under the Compact:

  • A student enrolled in a public or Department of Defense Education Activities (DODEA) school attending K-12 in the household of an active-duty service member, including members of the National Guard and Reserve on active duty orders pursuant to 10 U.S.C. Section 1209 and 1211
  • Children of members or veterans of the uniformed services who are severely injured and medically discharged or retired for a period of one year after medical discharge or retirement
  • Children of members of the uniformed services who perish while on active duty or as a result of injuries sustained on active duty for a period of one year after death

For more information, a copy of the compact rules, or to address an MIC3 issue at Osan Air Base, please contact the Osan School Liaison.
