We had the honor of hearing from a group from the Massachusetts Military Connected Children at our Administrative Council Meeting this morning. They discussed their school initiative which includes:
- Establishing a Network of Support for Military Connected Children & Families
- Identifying Military Connected Children within the School System
- Engaging Support through Military and Community Resources
Our plan in the district is to add a box for families to check asking whether they have a military connection at the start of next year. Once we have this information, we will discuss an event to bring together these families.
It was heartening to learn about the federal and state initiatives that are available to help children whose parents are serving our country. Any assistance we can provide these children and families is welcome.
