About Constitution Day

Constitution Day

September 17

Federal law requires all schools that receive federal funds to offer an educational program on the United States Constitution every year on Sept. 17, the anniversary of the signing of the country's founding document.

To support this initiative, the University of California has developed an interesting and informative online resource, including links to materials about the Constitution that are available through the National Archives and elsewhere.
