Region One Schools Receive Purple Star Campus Designation

Four Region One area schools were among the 150 Texas public schools awarded the Purple Star Campus Designation by Governor Greg Abbott.

Designated 2023-2024 Region One Purple Star Campuses are Edinburg CISD Anne L. Magee Elementary School and Edinburg North High School, United ISD United Middle School and Weslaco ISD Armando Cuellar Middle School.

According to the Office of the Texas Governor, the Purple Star Campus Designation program recognizes Texas public schools for their exceptional commitment to supporting and meeting the unique needs of military-connected students and their families.

To receive the designation, schools must designate a campus-based military liaison, create and maintain an easily accessible webpage that includes information for military-connected students and their families, institute a campus transition program for military-connected students and support a military family assistance initiative. 

All Texas public schools are eligible to receive a Purple Star Campus Designation, regardless of their military-connected student population size. Applications for the designation are accepted annually.
