Purple Star - Supporting Military Families

According to the Ohio Department of Education, since September 11, 2001, more than 18,000 Ohio National Guard members have been deployed to serve in the global war on terrorism.  Altogether, more than 60,000 Ohioans have actively served their nation away from home.  Approximately 34,000 students in Ohio are members of military families.  Frequent moves and family separations through deployments, as well as reintegration issues make life especially challenging.  Ohio offers a number of programs to assist military families.
