About Us

The Kentucky Council for the Social Studies (KCSS) serves as the primary voice for social studies professionals in Kentucky. We advocate for the vital role of social studies and assist educators at all levels (Elementary, Middle, High School, College, and Administration) through professional development for the delivery of effective and innovative instruction. Our conferences and publications provide a network of services to members throughout the state. KCSS is an affiliate member of the National Council for the Social Studies (NCSS).
