Military Connected Students

September 10, 2018

Honor your military connected students by being recognized as a Virginia Distinguished Purple Star School, awarded by the Virginia Department of Education.  See the requirements and application . To help with your application for the award, please note that several of the requirements have already been met, or can be met easily:

  • Posting a link on your school website to our FCPS military families page fulfills one of the requirements.
  • The School Board honored our military children and families at their April 12, 2018, meeting, which can count as an optional activity. 
  • If you do not already have a student led transition program, please contact Dede Bailer and she will send an outline of steps to take to start a program. 

With over 11,000 military connected youth in our FCPS family of students, this recognition demonstrates our commitment to our students and families who serve our nation.  Applications are due September 28, 2018.
