Biannual Plan updates to Governor.
Effective July 2009, Maryland joined the Interstate Commission on Educational Opportunity for Military Children (Chapter 502, Acts of 2009). To coordinate statewide participation and compliance with Commission activities, Maryland created a State Council in April 2010 (Executive Order 01.01.2010.09).
The Maryland State Council on Educational Opportunity for Military Children develops and updates a plan and recommendations that address issues confronting children of military families as they move from school to school. Such issues concern the transfer of records; sequence of courses; graduation requirements; extracurricular activities; starting age for kindergarten and first grade; immunization requirements; and power of custodial parents when parents are deployed.
Those members appointed by the Governor and three members who serve ex officio constitute the Council.
