Veterans diplomas.


      RELATES TO: KRS 158.140(4)



158.140(4) requires the Kentucky Board of Education to promulgate an

administrative regulation establishing the guidelines for use by local boards

of education when awarding a high school diploma to an honorably discharged

veteran who was enrolled in, but did not complete, high school prior to being

inducted into the United States Armed Forces during World War II, as defined in

KRS 40.010, or the Korean conflict as defined in KRS 40.010. This

administrative regulation establishes the requirements for awarding a high

school diploma to those World War II and Korean conflict veterans.


      Section 1. Documentation Needed to

Determine Eligibility. An honorably discharged veteran of World War II, or the

Korean conflict, or a member of the veteran’s family, shall provide a discharge

certificate showing the period of service and type of discharge and the name of

the school and district of enrollment to the Kentucky Department of Veterans

Affairs, 1111 Louisville Road, Frankfort, Kentucky 40601.


      Section 2. Guidelines for Local Boards of

Education to Award Diplomas. (1) The Kentucky Department of Veterans’ Affairs

shall forward the verified documentation to the local board of education.

      (2) Upon receipt of documentation, a

local board of education shall verify the veteran was enrolled in, but did not

complete, high school prior to induction and meets the requirements of KRS

158.140. If the high school or district has been consolidated or reconfigured

since the veteran’s enrollment, the current local board of education with

jurisdiction shall provide the verification. (29 Ky.R. 1439; Am. 1793; eff.
