You may have already heard of the Military Child Education Coalition’s® Student to Student program for high school students, or their “younger sibling” program at the middle school/junior high level called the Junior Student to Student program.  These programs exist in several schools where a significant number of military-connected students attend, and they provide a way for new students to quickly get connected at their new school.  (Visit the MCEC® website for more information on Student to Student and Junior Student to Student.)

What about those students who live beyond the reach of these fantastic programs?  . . . Students who live on Main Street America but are still affected by the deployment of Mom or Dad?  (Such as military-connected students whose service member isn't stationed at a large military installation or who are more remotely located due to service in the Guard or Reserves.)  How can programs created with this special student population in mind reach them?  Through a partnership with an organization whose reach is broad and deep in our education system . . . the National PTA!

As part of the National PTA’s Military Alliance for Parents and Partners (MAPP), the Military Child Education Coalition (MCEC)® is proud to announce this partnership which will focus on one or more of the following areas:

  • Military Family Support
  • Academic Achievement
  • Heath & Wellness
  • Extracurricular Learning Opportunities
  • Community Involvement & Support

In addition, a publication entitled “Guide to Engaging with Military-Connected Parents” will be developed which will include a toolkit of resource materials for parents to educate them about the unique needs of military families.

Hand in hand, we can make a difference for our military-connected students . . . for the sake of the child!
