Support For Military Families
The Cabot School District is dedicated to supporting our military students and families. Approximately 1,000 military children are enrolled in the Cabot School District.
We appreciate the sacrifices our families make each and every day. The district is committed to serving students of our military heroes and supporting them both emotionally and academically.
Cabot Public Schools is proud to be designated the first Purple Star School District in the state by the Arkansas State Council of the Military Interstate Children’s Compact Commission for our commitment to supporting and serving military children and their families.
The district has two dedicated Military Liaisons, Deputy Superintendent Michael Byrd and Director of Counseling Emily Taylor, to provide any necessary support for our military families. Our school counselors also serve as point of contact for our military families. They have been trained to specifically assist families in any situation military students may face including, constant relocation, enrollment, eligibility, graduation requirements, to dealing with a deployed parent.
