Military-Connected Students (Purple Star Schools)

This series helps prepare school personnel to support military-connected students. You will learn about military culture, the unique challenges that military-connected students may face (e.g., geographic transitions, parental absence, reintegration, and military-related parental injury and death), and existing supports for military-connected students (e.g., the Interstate Compact on Educational Opportunity for Military Children, school liaison officers, and special education law). These trainings can be completed to fulfill professional development requirements as part of the Purple Star School Program. At the end of each training, you can elect to have an email sent to you confirming completion. Submit the email confirmation(s) to your designated district representative. These trainings are available at no cost.
