East Guernsey Local Schools Recognized as Purple Star District

This entry was posted in News on by .

Buckeye Trail Elementary School, Buckeye Trail Middle School, and Buckeye Trail High School were all recently recognized as Purple Star Schools by the Ohio Department of Education.

The Purple Star designation recognizes schools that meet important criteria for serving military-connected students and families. Since the initiative’s inception, many schools have far exceeded these requirements and, as a Purple Star designee, schools are encouraged  to continually seek better ways to communicate, support, and serve students.

“I am pleased to inform you that the Ohio Department of Education selected Buckeye Trail Elementary School, Buckeye Trail Middle School, and Buckeye Trail High School as a 2020 Purple Star designees. We applaud and appreciate your outstanding commitment to serving military-connected students and families in your schools,” said Paolo De Maria, Superintendent of Public Instruction. “Each Child, Our Future, Ohio’s strategic plan for education, recognizes the importance of supporting the needs of the whole child. To be successful in school and when transitioning between school settings, Ohio’s military-connected youth require particular supports to ensure that their unique social, emotional and academic needs are met.” 

East Guernsey Local Schools is proud to support Ohio’s military families!
