Welcome Military-Connected Families!
We warmly welcome our
Military and Military-Connected Students and Families
Our district proudly serves more than 3200 military-connected children across our 16 K-12 schools. We recognize the value and importance that our military-connected students and families contribute to our communities. Children whose parents serve in the military endure high rates of mobility and the effects of multiple deployments. With frequent moves, children experience challenges associated with losing friends, teachers, and the comfort of a familiar environment. SCUC-ISD school communities are committed to supporting military children to address these challenges and promote the resiliency necessary to cope with military life.
SCUC-ISD is highly committed to ensuring excellence in the education of military-connected students and finding better ways to provide our military families with the support they deserve. Led by the efforts of school, staff, educators, counselors, SCUC-ISD school communities work diligently to support military-connected families and address their unique educational challenges.
Six SCUC-ISD Campuses are Texas Education Agency Designated PURPLE STAR SCHOOLS!
We are thrilled to announce that TEA has designated the following schools as Purple Star Campuses: 2020-2022: Dobie Junior High School, Clemens High School, Steele High School. 2021-2023: Corbett Junior High School, Cibolo Valley Elementary School and Green Valley Elementary School. The designation is a two year recognition. Schools may reapply for continued designation based on past and future supports for military students and families.
2021In 2019 the Texas Legislature passed SB 1557, providing a designation for certain school district campuses that take actions to assist military-connected students. The Texas Education Agency (TEA) then created the Purple Star Campus Designation that follows the requirements as outlined in SB 1557.
TEA awarded the first Purple Star Campus Designations in 2020. Each of the four SCUC-ISD schools in the DoDEA grant have been awarded the Purple Star Campus Designation.
The Purple Star Campus Designation criteria includes:
• an active campus-based military liaison
• maintain an updated website with information for military-connected families
• a campus transition program that includes specific opportunities and processes to welcome new students
• at least one initiative that includes local community government, recognitions of military-connected students or opportunity for local Active Duty involvement on campus.
CONGRATULATIONS to these amazing campuses for their support of our military community!
TEA has a special section on its website to support military students and families!
