Bossier Parish Schools have programs in place at all of our schools to meet the unique needs of military students. The State just put into policy the Purple Star School distinction, and we will have several schools with this honor.
Most of our schools have annual events and programs honoring our veterans. We have military clubs for military students at several of our schools. We hold events and recognitions for our military students throughout the month of April for Purple Up month. We also host several adult military volunteers in several of our schools.
