EDUCATIONAL OPPORTUNITY FOR MILITARY CHILDREN

A. Facilitating the timely enrollment of children of military families and           
    ensuring that they are not placed at a disadvantage due to difficulty in the 
    transfer of education records from the previous school districts or 
    variations in entrance and age requirements;

B. Facilitating the student placement process through which children of
    military families are not disadvantaged by variations in attendance
    requirements, scheduling, sequencing, grading, course content, or
    assessment;

C. Facilitating the qualification and eligibility for enrollment, educational
    programs, and participation in extracurricular academic, athletic, and
    social activities;

D. Facilitating the on-time graduation of children of military families;

E. Providing for the promulgation and enforcement of administrative rules
    implementing the provisions of this compact;

F. Providing for the uniform collection and sharing of information between 
    and among member states, schools, and military families under this
    compact;

G. Promoting coordination between this compact and other compacts
    affecting military children; and
