What is a Purple Star school?

The Arkansas Purple Star School Award for military-friendly schools recognizes schools that show a major commitment to serving students and families connected to our nation’s armed forces. Purple Star awardees receive a special Purple Star recognition to display in their building and are recognized on the Division of Elementary and Secondary Education website. To learn more about this honor and to learn how your school may qualify, please go to Arkansas Purple Star School Award Program Description.
