Useful Links for Military Families:

 

Tutor.com for U.S. Military Families

All K-12 children in National Guard, Reserve and Active Duty Military families are eligible to receive one-to-one academic support 24/7 in math, science, English and more, regardless of the service member’s branch or deployment status.

Tutor.com for U.S. Military Families provides this service at no cost to K-12 military children through funding by the Department of Defense MWR Library Program, the Yellow Ribbon Reintegration Program and the Navy General Library Program.

Grade K-12 students in military families can take full advantage of this valuable academic benefit.

 

Real Warriors

http://realwarriors.net/

The Real Warriors Campaign is a multimedia public awareness campaign designed to encourage help-seeking behavior among service members, veterans and military families coping with invisible wounds.

 

Sesame Workshop

http://www.sesameworkshop.org/what-we-do/our-initiatives/military-families/

When we think of war and deployment, we rarely think of the youngest members of our military families. They often have a difficult time understanding why Mom or Dad needs to leave home, or how things might be different upon their return.

 

For these children and their families, Sesame Street provides much-needed support and practical education with Talk, Listen, Connect, a multiphase outreach initiative to help kids through deployments, combat-related injuries, and the death of a loved one. Videos, storybooks, and workbooks especially created for this program guide families through these tough transitions by showing how real families — as well as furry monsters — deal with similar circumstances.

 

Military Interstate Children's Compact Commission

http://www.mic3.net/

The goal of the Compact is to replace the widely varying policies affecting transitioning military students. The Compact leverages consistency: It uses a comprehensive approach that provides a consistent policy in every school district and in every state that chooses to join.

 

The Compact addresses key educational transition issues encountered by military families including enrollment, placement, attendance, eligibility and graduation.

 

Children of active duty members of the uniformed services, National Guard and Reserve on active duty orders, and members or veterans who are medically discharged or retired for one year are eligible for assistance under the Compact.

 

ODE - Supporting Ohio's Military Families

http://education.ohio.gov/Topics/Other-Resources/Family-and-Community-Engagement/Supporting-Ohio-s-Military-Families

Since Sept. 11, 2001, more than 18,000 Ohio National Guard members have been deployed to serve in the global war on terrorism. Altogether, more than 60,000 Ohioans have actively served their nation away from home. Approximately 34,000 students in Ohio are members of military families. Frequent moves and family separations through deployments, as well as reintegration issues make life especially challenging. Ohio offers a number of programs to assist military families.
