Military Children-Interstate Compact On Educational Opportunity

Section 100.20 of the Regulations of the Commissioner of Education to Implement the Interstate Compact on Educational Opportunity for Military Children 
Education Law §3304, as added by Chapter 328 of the Laws of 2014, provides that if official education records cannot be released to the parents for purposes of transferring to another school, the custodian of the records in the sending state shall prepare and furnish to the parent a set of unofficial records. Upon receipt of the unofficial records by the school in the receiving state, the student must be enrolled and placement decisions must be made in accordance with the information on unofficial records and then later validated. It also requires that states that enter into the interstate compact, including New York State, give families 30 days from the date of enrollment to obtain any immunizations required by the receiving state.  9/2017
