State Council on the Education of Military Children
Helping Military Children Transition and Succeed
The State Council on the Education of Military Children was established to resolve the transition-related issues military families face through the coordinated efforts of Arizona's education leaders and military installation commanders. The Council provides for coordination among agencies of local government, local education agencies, and military installations concerning Arizona's participation in, and compliance with, the Interstate Compact on Educational Opportunity for Military Children. The Compact was created to remove barriers to educational success imposed on children of military families due to frequent moves and deployments. The Council provides a forum for Arizona's military families to discuss the unique issues that their children face in school. The Council will provide recommendations to the Governor on ways to assist military families and their children with the goal of easing their transitions during deployments and relocations.
The Council was originally established under Executive Order in July 2012, and was renewed by Governor Ducey in March 2015 and September 2018.
