The Military Interstate Children's Compact Commission (MIC3) has launched its new Web site, www.MIC3.net. The new Web site will serve as an information hub for military families, school officials, and other interested members of the public.
The compact was created because military families move between postings on a regular basis, and while reassignments can often be a boon for career personnel, they can be difficult for the children of military families. The average military student faces transition challenges more than twice during high school and most military children will attend six to nine different school systems in their lives from kindergarten to 12th grade. The Compact therefore seeks to make transition easier for the children of military families so that they are afforded the same opportunities for educational success as other children and are not penalized or delayed in achieving their educational goals.
