Advanced Enrollment for Students Covered under the Interstate Compact
On November 11, 2021, Education Law §3304 was amended to require advanced enrollment for students covered under the Interstate Compact on Educational Opportunity for Military Children. A student whose parent or guardian is being relocated to the state under military orders and is transferred or is pending transfer to a military installation within the state shall be deemed to be a resident pupil of a school district for the purposes of enrollment. School districts must permit preliminary enrollment by remote registration, without charge, for students covered under the Interstate Compact. Additional information can be referenced in questions 13 and 17 of the Interstate Compact: Frequently Asked Questions.
Questions about the Interstate Compact may be emailed to MilitaryCompact@nysed.gov.
