WV Joins Compact to Help Children of Military Families Transfer Schools

West Virginia is the newest member of the Interstate Compact on Educational Opportunity for Military Children.

Acting Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin signed house Bill 2550 into law Wednesday, allowing the state to become the compact's 36th member.

State Board of Education president Priscilla Haden says many students from military families face problems transferring school records and credits.

The compact is designed to ease the transition of students when they transfer to a new school due to the military commitment of one, or both, parents.
