About Community Coordinators

Community Coordinators serve as the liaison to the local and regional military-connected community. Each coordinator will engage parents, educators, school liaisons, business, and civil leaders, and other stakeholders to share MCEC resources and programs. Community Coordinators provide guidance and assistance to military families, schools/districts, and installations.

Our Objective

Their primary objective is to assist district and campuses in Purple Star School readiness efforts through awareness, education, and implementation of MCEC services needed to meet state requirements for Purple Star designation.  

They will build and sustain positive relationships among students, parents, school personnel, community members, school liaisons, and other installation personnel.
