Military Education Compact ready for Governor’s signature in Oregon
Oregon took a significant step this week toward joining the Interstate Compact on Educational Opportunity for Military Children when state lawmakers passed SB 1506 and sent it to Gov. John Kitzhaber's desk for his signature. Compact legislation is also being actively considered in Minnesota. Should Oregon and Minnesota join the compact it would push membership to 48 states plus the District of Columbia. The Compact, which was developed jointly by CSG’s Compact Center and the Department of Defense, ensures the uniform treatment and resolves education transition issues faced by children of active duty service members transferring between school districts and states.
