    Duneland Schools Receive Purple Star Designation -11/21

    All 10 schools in the Duneland School district were designated as Purple Star schools in an announcement by the Indiana Department of Education (IDOE) on Wednesday morning.

    The 36 named Indiana schools receiving the Purple Star designation were awarded for their significant display of commitment to service members, veterans, students and families connected to our nation’s military.

    The newly designated Purple Star schools join 60 schools that were a part of Indiana’s inaugural Purple Star designation in 2020. This designation is valid for three years.

    Schools receiving the Purple Star designation must meet the following criteria:

    • Assigned point of contact for military families
    • Training requirement for point of contact
    • Dedicated webpage
    • Annual military program (e.g., Veterans Day, 9/11, etc.)
    • Public military display
    • School Board resolution publicizing support for military students and families
    • Employment of military service members and their immediate family members

    “In Indiana, we are especially thankful for our state’s commitment to our service members,” said Dr. Katie Jenner, Indiana Secretary of Education. “This Veterans Day, it is an honor to award an additional 35 schools with the Purple Star designation. These schools work year-round to honor our service members and their families, as well as prepare students to pursue their dreams after high school, including the pursuit of enlistment leading to service.”
