A huge Thank You to Mike Miller from the Military Guide for sharing these resources with us. We appreciate you looking out for us and our military families.
The Department of Defense offers several relocation resources to all branches of the armed forces. Military personnel are often faced with both personal and economic obstacles when moving as active or retired service members. Veterans and active duty service members can use this guide to help them navigate PCS orders and homeownership after service.
Moving to a new post can spark anxiety in military families over the quality of the schools in and around a military installation. But families with children in preschool through high school can take certain actions to mitigate these concerns and help their children transition effectively to a new school. This guide has been compiled by military spouses with decades of experience in an effort to help simplify that process.

To ensure inclusive, quality educational opportunities for all military-connected children affected by mobility, transition, deployments and family separation. The enduring strategic goals that the Military Child Education Coalition seeks are:
- Military-connected children’s academic, social and emotional needs are recognized, supported and appropriate responses provided.
- Parents and other supporting adults are empowered with the knowledge to ensure military-connected children are college, workforce, and life-ready.
- A strong community of partners is committed to supporting an environment where military-connected children thrive.
The Interstate Compact on Educational Opportunity for Military Children
This was developed jointly by The Council of State Government’s National Center for Interstate Compacts and the Department of Defense, with input from policy experts, and stakeholders from 18 different organizations and national associations, including representatives of parents, teachers, school administrators, military families, and federal, state, and local officials.
The Interstate Compact eases education transition issues faced by the children of active duty service members transferring between school districts and states. The Compact allows for uniform treatment of military children when dealing with issues of enrollment, eligibility, placement, and graduation when transferring schools.
