Districts given power to raise dropout age

-A A +A

By Jennifer Corbett

 On Monday, the General Assembly passed a law giving school boards the option to raise the dropout age for high school students.

The Senate voted 33-5 in favor of Senate Bill 97, which allows school districts to raise the age from 16 to 18.  

If more than 55 percent of school districts decide to do so, the policy becomes mandatory statewide. All other school districts would then have four years to implement the new policy.

Local school officials were supportive of the law, while local legislators were lukewarm toward the new policy change.
