Purple Star Program

Superintendent Dr. Curtis Cain at Veterans Day family appreciation

MCEC is the national advocate for Purple Star Schools, a program that supports military-connected children as they relocate to new schools due to a parent’s change in duty station. 

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. 

MCEC is the nation’s most complete resource for states seeking to start a Purple Star School program and stands ready to offer guidance and serve in a consultative role every step of the way. As of Oct. 10, 2023, 38 states have received Purple Star School designation.
