HOW EVERY STUDENT SUCCEEDS ACT INSPIRES ACADEMIC SUCCESS FOR THE MILITARY CHILD! (176 hits)

Every Student Succeeds Act & the Military Student Data Identifier - The Vital Addition of a Military Student Identifier in Every Student Succeeds Act:


More than two million military-connected children and youth (birth through age 23) live with challenges presented by frequent moves, parental deployments, and a host of life transitions that include reintegration and dealing with profoundly changed parents. The vast majority of military-connected students are school-age (approximately 1.2 million). More than 90% of school-age military-connected students in pre-kindergarten through grade twelve are in public school classrooms.


The academic success as well as the attuned services for these children depends on a network of informed, supportive professionals who can respond effectively to their unique challenges.


For the first time in the history of our Nation, the military-connected student, who also serves, is recognized in our education policy.


In December 2015, the members of the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives voted in favor of the Every Student Succeeds Act. Senators Lamar Alexander and Patty Murray and Representatives John Kline and Bobby Scott were instrumental in the acceptance of the Act. The legislation, signed by the President on December 10, includes a military student identifier that will enable military leaders, educators, and elected officials at all levels of government to understand how military-connected children are performing in school. Despite the high number of military-connected students, the vast majority in public school classrooms, there has been no reliable, consistent, school-based data on the academic health of these students, until now.


“We know military-connected children move three times more often than their peers, creating the opportunity for disruptions, disconnects and gaps in education, in addition to the stress of having parents away from home for long periods of time,” said Dr. Mary Keller, president and chief executive officer of MCEC. “Without the military student identifier, educators and policy leaders have no way of knowing whether these students are faring well, keeping pace, or falling behind. The identifier will provide data to inform both educators and policymakers, enabling them to adjust programs, direct resources and adopt strategies that support these students and their military families.”


The military student identifier in ESSA applies to students with a parent who is a member of the Armed Forces on active duty. The Military Child Education Coalition strongly supports the inclusion of students whose parents serve in the National Guard or Reserves as part of the ESSA reporting on military-connected students.
