Frequently Asked Questions (F.A.Q.)

Q:) How is this legal?
A:) BREAK is legal because...

  1. Children attend ONLY at the request of their parent(s) or guardian(s).
  2. Classes are held off-campus (not on school property.)
  3. Public schools do not provide any support for BREAK.

Q:) How will my child get to and from the Released Time location?
A:) Students will be escorted by approved Released Time staff to and from all classes.

Q:) Who authorizes the classes?
A:) Kentucky Law (KRS 158.200 and KRS 158.220) with the approval of the local board of education. (Upheld by the U.S. Supreme Court in Zorach vs. Clauson case.)

Q:) Is this only a local program?
A:) No. Similar classes are held for other schools in Kentucky and across the nation.

Q:) Does this mean religion is being taught in the public school?

Q:) Will my child miss any public school work?
A:) Students will attend on a school approved schedule similar to other elective classes.

Q:) Does time spent at BREAK count as instructional time?
A:) Yes. According to KRS 158.240, “Pupils who attend the classes for moral instruction at the time specified and for the period fixed shall be credited with the time spent as if they had been in actual attendance in school, and the time shall be calculated as part of the actual school work required by KRS 158.060.”
