Purple Star Designation: The Purple Star designation is awarded to military-friendly schools by the Virginia Department of Education and the Virginia Council on the Interstate Compact on Educational Opportunity for Military Children. To qualify for a Purple Star, schools must have a staff member designated as the point of contact for military students and families. The point of contact serves as the primary link between the military family and the school. Schools must also demonstrate 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.
