To become a Purple Star District, the following criteria must be met:

  1. All schools in the district receive a Purple Star Award

  2. The county school board passes a resolution in support of military children and their families (examples may be reviewed on the Purple Star Award section of the Common Ground Partnership’s website). This provides every school in the district with credit for completing one of the two required optional military support activities on their application.

  3. One member of the county office successfully completes the military family point of contact training and quiz to provide a connection between school contacts and the district.

  4. The school district’s homepage includes a link to the Common Ground Partnership’s military family resources.
