Waynesville hosts Military Interstate Children’s Compact session

Waynesville hosts Military Interstate Children’s Compact session

Area school leaders learned about the Military Interstate Children’s Compact Commission (MIC3) and how its work impacts students and schools who serve military-impacted families on Nov. 29 at Waynesville High School. 

“We want to be a preferred state for military families and it takes all of us working together to make that happen,” said Dr. Brian Henry, superintendent of the Waynesville R-VI School District, who also serves as Missouri’s Compact Commissioner. “I have also found that what is good for military families is also good for our local families, so both local and military families will benefit from our efforts.”

Lindsey M. Dablow, MIC3 training and operations associate, and Cherise Imai, MIC3 executive director, provided information about: 

- students covered under the compact

- responsibilities of sending and receiving schools

- official education records/transcripts

- kindergarten and first grade entrance age

- responsibilities of sending and receiving schools

The schools represented included Dixon, Laquey, Plato, Stoutland, Camdenton, Lebanon, Licking and Waynesville. Bobbie Petersen, school liaison specialist at Fort Leonard Wood, also attended.
