Hilliard Bradley High School Recognized for Commitment to Serving Students in Military Families

The Ohio Department of Education announced 165 Ohio schools are receiving the Purple Star designation as members of the Purple Star Class of 2023. Hilliard Bradley High School was recognized for for being one of the schools  receiving the Purple Star Award for the class of 2023. Purple Star schools show a significant commitment to serving students and families connected to our nation’s armed forces.

“Ohio led the nation in establishing the Purple Star program, and I am proud to congratulate this next group of school communities as we recognize the Month of the Military Child,” said Ohio Governor Mike DeWine. “We recognize the unique challenges facing military families, and Ohio’s Purple Star schools embrace these students and their families to ensure their learning needs are met, while providing support and resources so they can be successful in school.”

“Purple Star schools demonstrate the importance of students feeling supported and what it means to be part of a learning community,” said Interim Superintendent of Public Instruction Dr. Stephanie Siddens. “I share my deep gratitude with Ohio’s military service members and their families and congratulate this year’s Purple Star schools for providing the academic and wellness supports so these students are ready to learn, grow and achieve.”

Ohio is home to 511 active Purple Star schools that dedicate time and supports to students in military families. All awardees meet the unique wellness and academic needs of Ohio’s military-connected youth. To qualify, schools choose a school-based staff person to serve as a liaison between military families and the school. These liaisons complete professional development, identify military-connected students and facilitate supports throughout the school community for identified students and families. Purple Star schools also participate in at least one supportive activity each year. The Purple Star Class of 2023 includes schools that host monthly military kids club meetings, professional learning for all educators on the unique considerations for serving military-connected students and school wide celebrations honoring military students and families.

The district would also like to recognize Hilliard Davidson High School for being a long-time contender for this prestigious award.
