Three schools earned the 2020 Purple Star Designation from the Virginia Council on the Interstate Compact on the Educational Opportunity of Military Children. Butts Road Primary, G.W. Carver Intermediate, and Portlock Primary join 24 other Chesapeake Public Schools designated as Purple Star schools.
The Virginia Purple Star Designation is awarded to military-friendly schools that have demonstrated a major commitment to students and families connected to our nation’s military.
The Purple Star Award is awarded to schools who meet the requirements outlined in the Virginia Purple Star designation qualification standards. Honored schools have successfully demonstrated their commitment to meeting the needs of military students by providing resources and programming on issues important to military families, such as academic planning and transitions between schools, districts, and states.
Purple Star schools retain the designation for three years before being required to reapply.
