In nearly every community in Virginia, there are children with parents or guardians on active duty with the armed forces. In fact, Virginia leads the nation – with nearly 80,000 – in the number of students with military ties. Virginia's public schools are committed to the care and education of the children these brave men and women have left behind.  VDOE, in collaboration with a number of military authorities, provides resources concerning children of mobilized military personnel for families and educators.
