Currently, there are thousands of military families with students enrolled in public and public charter schools in the District. These students face barriers to educational success due to frequent moves and their parents’ deployment. OSSE's Division of Systems and Supports, K-12, in collaboration with the District of Columbia Military Interstate Children’s Compact Commission (MIC3), will host a training on Wednesday, Nov. 14, 2018, from 1-3 p.m. on serving military-dependent children and the importance of the District’s Interstate Compact on Educational Opportunity for Military Children.
