On September 22, five Judson ISD campuses were given TEA Purple Star Campus Designations, which recognizes campuses for “demonstrating support and commitment in meeting the unique needs of military-connected students and families.”
“I am incredibly proud of each of these campuses and what they have done to ensure we support our military families in the community,” said Monica Garcia, Executive Director of Student and Family Support Services.
The designated campuses were Masters Elementary, Salinas Elementary, Rolling Meadows Elementary, Wortham Oaks Elementary, and Judson High School.
Each campus had to meet specific criteria, which include having a designated campus-based military liaison, create and maintain an easily accessible webpage that contains information about military-connected students and their families, have a campus transition program for military-connected students. They also can have a resolution showing support, participate in Month of the Military Child or Military Family Month, or provide opportunities for active-duty military members.
“Having a large number of military families in our community, ensuring that we have support for them is essential to who we are as a district,” Sylvia Greenwood, Military Families & College Readiness Specialist, said.
