Stacy Allsbrook-Huisman for Millie Journal —
I can’t see the future. I don’t know what I need to prepare for when I’m withdrawing from one school, planning for the next. Even though we are an active duty military family of twenty-five years, it’s the first time I’ll have a middle school or high school student. I have a star athlete in Florida, but will she be a bench warmer in Virginia? If my son is identified gifted in one state, will he have the same school services at the next school? The Interstate Compact on Educational Opportunity for Military Children answers many questions I have regarding changing schools. Military families with school-aged children need to know about this agreement and the Military Interstate Children’s Compact Commission (MIC3) which implements and oversees it.
