The bill creates the purple star school program (program) in the
department of education (department). The purpose of the program is to
designate schools of a school district, district charter schools, institute
charter schools, or boards of cooperative services (public schools) that
provide services and supports to military-connected students and their
families to help mitigate the academic and social-emotional challenges
they may face as a result of frequent moves, new schools, parental
deployments, and different social circles and experiences.
The department is required to create:
  • An application for a public school to apply for a purple star
school designation;
  • A rubric to measure whether a public school qualifies for
a purple star school designation; and
  • A timeline for a public school to apply for and to renew the
purple star school designation.
The department shall designate a public school as a purple star
school if the public school applies and qualifies for the designation.
During the first week of April each year, the governor, or the
governor's designee, shall recognize each purple star school and present
the purple star schools with a certificate.
A purple star school designation is valid for 3 years.
