Maintaining our Commitment to Military Students
Military-connected students and their families face a unique set of challenges, including the portability of academic credits and credentials, access to extracurricular activities, reduced access to extracurricular activities, and obstacles to family engagement.

The panel features Louie Lopez, the Department of Defense’s Director of STEM Education, Dr. Jerrod Wheeler, Superintendent of Knob Noster Public School, and Demetreia Adderley, a classroom teacher with deep expertise serving military-connected student bodies. The panelists provide information on actionable resources and concrete tactics for empowering military-connected students and families and the schools that serve them.
