  Military Kids

Military Kids is housed within the OSPI Learning and Teaching division and serves as a resource for educators in Washington state who work with our 136,000 military families. OSPI has a rich history with Operation Military Kids as a former partner of that national program. At the state level, we continue to focus on educating our K-12 teachers on how to support military youth in schools and communities before, during and after the deployment of a parent or loved one.
