The Ohio Department of Education has selected Albion Elementary School, Royal View Elementary School, Valley Vista Elementary School, North Royalton Middle School and North Royalton High School as 2020 Purple Star designees. The Purple Star designation recognizes schools that meet important criteria for serving military-connected students and families, including ensuring students’ unique social, emotional and academic needs are being met. Our five buildings were the only schools in Cuyahoga County to receive this recognition.
“We know that when children of military families enroll in our District, there are times when deployment or other issues cause disruption in their lives,” said Superintendent Greg Gurka, North Royalton City Schools. “We are committed to helping families during those times. In addition, we value the relationships that we have with military families and veterans and work to invite them into our schools and recognize them. Whether it is a Veterans Day assembly, flag raising at our varsity football games or simply the high school band’s tribute at their end-of-year concert, we value the sacrifice these families are making and strive to support them.”
“We applaud and appreciate your outstanding commitment to serving military-connected students and families in your schools,” said Superintendent of Public Instruction Paolo DeMaria, Ohio Department of Education.
