Kings Park Recognized as Purple Star School

October 30, 2023

Kings Park Elementary School has been recognized by the Virginia Department of Education and the Virginia Council on the Interstate Compact on Educational Opportunity for Military Children as a Purple Star school, a designation reserved for schools that prove themselves to be military-friendly school and committed to the needs of military-connected students and their families.

To qualify for a Purple Star, schools must have a staff member designated as the point of contact for military students and families who 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.
