In 2009, Maryland enacted the Interstate Compact on Educational Opportunity for Military Children (Chapters 501 & 502, Acts of 2009). The Compact was activated in July 2008 when it was ratified by the tenth state. As of May 2012, the Compact has been ratified by 46 states, and the District of Columbia.

The Compact addresses transitional issues faced by the children of active-duty military personnel as they transfer from one school system to the next. The Compact provides for an Interstate Commission to draft and enforce rules and provide general oversight. Each member state is represented on the Interstate Commission and must create its own State Council.
