Support for Military Families
 
The London City School District appreciates the sacrifices that our men and women in the military make everyday. In an effort to increase resources and lessen the burden of service to these families, LCS has established a single point of contact for military families and launched a webpage as a repository for helpful resources. All staff members within the London City School District receive annual training in order to understand and better support the challenges of military families. 
 

Each year, our school district is proud to host Veteran's Day events in every school recognizing the importance and honoring the sacrifices made by our current and former military community members.

All London Schools Designated as Purple Star Schools for Efforts to Support Military Families
Dateline: Thursday, December 6th, 2018
 

The London City School District appreciates the sacrifices that our men and women in the military make everyday. Inspired by an Ohio of Education program, the district began efforts last spring to increase resources and lessen the burden of service to militarily-impacted families.


Since that time, the district has established a single point of contact for military families, launched a web page with helpful resources, revised enrollment forms to support families affected by deployments, and educated staff on the challenges our military-impacted students face everyday. These efforts were recognized last Thursday by the Ohio Department of Education as each district school was designated as a Purple Star School, which recognizes schools that are military-friendly.


The London Board of Education passed a resolution supporting military children and families and district efforts to better support them in April of 2018. Board President Darryl Brown praised the adoption of the resolution at the time. Brown, who currently serves as the Deputy Director and Senior Supervisory Attorney at Wright Patterson Air Force Base, noted that London is home to only a few active military families but is home to a number of reserve families. Brown noted the burdens of service can be overwhelming at times for families and praised district efforts, which are in line with the district’s goal of individuals having a “positive user experience” with our district.
