The Facts About Our System and Military Connected Children

Here at the Military Childrens Collaborative Group, we have several programs to provide assistance for children of those who serve in our armed forces.

Military Kids in a Classroom

Approximately 1.7 million military connected children are enrolled in our schools.

Very few teachers, counselors, or administrators have been trained on how military life can impact the child’s well-being and their success in school.

Two million children have experienced the deployment of a parent/guardian. Most of these children have experienced multiple deployments.

The Department of Defense and US Education have no method or system in place to identify where these children are enrolled in schools and exactly how many children are involved.

Most school districts nationally do not have student enrollment forms with questions requesting information on parents/guardian’s present military status.
