President Barack Obama speaks at the Veterans of Foreign Wars National Convention in Phoenix, Monday, Aug. 17.
Cornerstone Baptist Church is providing the option after Arlington and Mansfield independent school district officials said they won't air the president's address live.
The Arlington school district said students who supply proof of their parents' approval will be dismissed from class to watch the address at an off-site location. It will be considered an excused absence, and students should return to school within a reasonable time after the address, district officials said.
Church leaders plan to show the 11 a.m. speech live in the sanctuary and said they are expecting anywhere from 100 to 200 children and their parents.
Church leader Vera McKissic admits she doesn't agree with all the president's policies, but said she believes the speech does have educational and historical significance.
"Let's say there were some political things that they disagreed with, what better opportunity to go home and teach your children this is what the president said, this is what we believe and this is why," she said.
The White House later released the text of the speech to soothe the concerns of parents and conservative leaders who feared President Obama might be spreading a political agenda.
