Military children move every two to three years. The Purple Star School program is designed to help schools respond to the educational and social-emotional challenges military-connected children face during their transition to a new school and keep them on track to be college, workforce, and life-ready. Military-connected refers to children of service members on active duty, and in the National Guard and Reserves.
Student 2 Student is a program that supports military-connected children as they relocate to new schools due to a parent’s change in duty station. This is a student program that brings military and civilian students together to welcome new students, and make sure their transition is successful.
