Morongo Unified School District (MUSD) applied for and received the California Purple Star Schools designation for Condor Elementary School, Twentynine Palms Elementary School, Twentynine Palms Junior High School and Twentynine Palms High School.
The California Purple Star School Designation Program (Purple Star Program) seeks to reduce the burden on military-connected students and their families by articulating the most critical transition supports for military-connected students and their families by publicly designating schools that meet certain requirements. The program signals which schools are the most committed and best equipped to meet their unique needs.
“This is a tremendous honor to have four of our schools receive the Purple Star Program designation as our teachers and staff support our military connected students during their time at MUSD,” said MUSD Superintendent Dr. Patricio I. Vargas.
The Purple Star Program was designed to help mitigate the challenges of high mobility by setting standards for and publicly designating military-friendly schools.
