Required Observances (Constitution Day, Disability History Month, Veterans Day, and Temperance and Good Citizenship Day)
Constitution Day will be observed each year on September 17 in commemoration of the September 17, 1787, signing of the United States Constitution. If September 17 occurs on a non-school day, Constitution Day will be conducted on the preceding Friday.
Disability History Month will be observed during the month of October by conducting or promoting educational activities such as school assemblies or guest speaker presentations that provide instruction, awareness and understanding of disability history and people with disabilities.
Principals will be responsible for the preparation and presentation of educational activities of approximately 60 minutes in duration in observance of Veterans Day. The program will be conducted during the school week preceding the eleventh day of November of each year.
Temperance and Good Citizenship Day will be observed on January 16 or, if on a non-school day, the Friday preceding January 16. On that day, the social studies teachers must, as resources allow, coordinate a voter registration event in each history or social studies class attended by high school seniors.
