KDE provides Veterans Day observance resources


All public schools in Kentucky are required to devote one class or instructional period to the observance of Veterans Day. The passage of Senate Bill 47 (2006) requires the observance to be within the five school days preceding Veterans Day, which is Nov. 11.

The law requires an assembly for a Veterans Day program that must be approved by the principal and must consist at minimum of a teacher and a veteran speaking on the meaning of Veterans Day. It encourages schools to seek advice on developing a Veterans Day program from the Kentucky Department of Veterans Affairs and from veterans service organizations such as the American Legion and the Veterans of Foreign Wars.

The Kentucky Department of Education offers these contacts and resources to help in planning your Veterans Day observance:
