District Receives Recognition for Extraordinary Support of Military Students, Families
Once again, Cumberland County Schools (CCS) is being recognized for its support of military-connected students and families.
All schools in the district received the Purple Star Recognition from the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction. As a result, CCS was one of eight districts in North Carolina honored with the State Superintendent’s Purple Star District Award earlier today.
“CCS is proud to be a part of a community with a rich military history,” said CCS Superintendent Dr. Marvin Connelly, Jr. “Our district serves the third-largest concentration of military-connected students in the world. It is an honor to be recognized for our military-friendly practices and a commitment to military students and families.”
Schools earn the Purple Star Recognition for completing activities aimed at ensuring strong support for students of military families. Purple Star schools have a staff member as a designated point of contact for military students and families, a designated central administration staff member supporting the point of contact in the school, and annual professional development that addresses special considerations for military students and families.
