The award comes from the Purple Star Advisory Board, formed by Ohio’s departments of Education, Higher Education, Veterans Services and Adjutant General. Children of military families are frequently affected by switching schools, as well as by a parent’s deployment.
“A supportive school environment can have a significant impact on our military-connected students, and we’re happy to see such a great interest in this designation by Ohio’s schools,” said state Superintendent Pablo DeMaria. “These Purple Star schools provide our children and families with the resources they need to be successful. We’re thankful for their service and honored to continue the important work of improving services for Ohio’s military families.”
