Military Family Support

  • Welcome to the Kershaw County School District.  We understand the challenges families endure anytime there is a Permanent Change of Station (PCS), Deployment, etc.  With our proximity to Ft. Jackson, Shaw Air Force Base, and McEntire Joint Training Center, we have several military families.  South Carolina is a participant in the Military Interstate Children's Compact Commission (MIC3) to ease the burdens of a transition.

What is the Compact?

  • The Compact deals with the challenges of military children and their frequent relocations.  It allows for uniform treatment as military children transfer between school districts in member states.

    Note: The Compact only applies to public schools.

Students Covered Under the Compact

  • Children of the following:

    • Active duty members of the uniformed services, including members of the National Guard and Reserve on active duty orders (Title 10)

    • Members or veterans who are medically discharged or retired for one year

    • Members who die on active duty, for a period of one year after death

    • Uniformed members of the Commissioned Corps of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), and United States Public Health Services (USPHS)

  • Please note that the Kershaw County School District is currently seeking to solidify our commitment to our military families by applying for the Purple Star designation.
