Military-connected students have one degree of separation from their military sponsor. Usually, the connection is biological, but it can also occur through adoption, foster parenting, or those with in loco parents' authorization.
MUSD is committed to supporting military-connected students and their families in school transition and registration as well as providing information and resources for academic enrichment. MUSD wishes to engage in school and community partnership initiatives to foster student success while meeting military-connected students' unique needs.
The Purple Star Designation Program seeks to:
Reduce burdens on military-connected students and their families,
Provide transition supports, and
Identify schools that are committed and best equipped to meet military-connected students' and their families' needs.
