Military Interstate Children's Compact Commission (MIC3)

As a result of the passage of the Valor Act of 2012, Massachusetts became a member of the Military Interstate Children's Compact Commission or MIC3. In accordance with the Valor Act and MIC3, the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education is committed to provide support and assistance to the students of active duty military families. We work to ensure the timely enrollment and graduation of this mobile population.
