The Purple Star Award is a designation assigned to schools which display a special commitment to supporting military children and their families. Common Ground Partners review applications and the West Virginia Department of Education issues awards to schools meeting the award’s eligibility criteria. Schools receiving the award are issued an official certificate and additional electronic materials which may be used to pridefully display their status as a military-friendly school throughout the building. This award contributes to our partnership‘s efforts to build strong bonds between schools, military service members, and community organizations which meet the specialized needs of our children and enhance the success of all students.

To learn how your school or school district may become recognized for a three-year period (the present school year and following two school years) with the Purple Star Award, please review the application below or contact WVDE Coordinator, Mr. Robert Mellace at or 1-833-627-2833.
