MIC3 Logo



MIC3's purpose is to remove barriers to educational success imposed on children of military families. Through the Interstate Compact key educational transition issues encountered by children of military families are addressed.

On April 16th, the OPI honored Montana's may military members and their families by taking part in "Purple Up."   Superintendent Arntzen visited Great Falls school, beginning the day at Loy Elementary where the majority of the students have a family member in the military.
