A Program for Providing Patriotic Exercises and Instructions for Flag Etiquette, Use, and Display.
Kansas Public Schools are required by state law to have a program of patriotic exercises that includes instructions relating to flag etiquette, use, display, recitation of the "Pledge of Allegiance," and observance of legal holidays. The Kansas State Board of Education (KSBE) has prepared this booklet as a resource for schools to develop appropriate programs of patriotic exercises. The booklet includes the federal Flag Code, instructional suggestions, and selected resources that schools in Kansas may use to develop a program that meets the statutory requirements and aligns with local curriculum. The booklet is divided into eleven sections: (1) "Introduction"; (2) "Statutory Authority"; (3) "Suggested Patriotic Exercises"; (4) "Linking a Program of Patriotic Exercises to the Kansas Curricular Standards"; (5) "Flag Etiquette, Use and Display"; (6) "History of the Pledge of Allegiance"; (7) "Presenting the Flag"; (8) "Folding the Flag"; (9) "Examples of Various Flag Displays"; (10) "Significant Legal Holidays for Flying the Flag"; and (11) "Resources and Activities."
