The Kentucky Department of Education each year sets a series of dates during which we ask our own staff and other organizations to avoid being in schools and scheduling events for teachers and administrators. The dates are selected because they are extremely busy times for schools and districts. Please make every attempt to avoid being in schools and scheduling conferences and meetings during August 2016 (beginning of school year), during the end of the school year and other busy times at the schools.
