The LaRue County School Board last week raised the dropout age from 16 to 18.
In a special meeting June 25, the board discussed the approval of the Senate Bill 97, known as the “Graduate Kentucky” bill passed in March, intended to raise the compulsory drop out age from 16 to 18.
“Districts all across the state have discussed this bill; a few had midnight meetings,” said Superintendent Sam Sanders, during the overview of the bill. “Once 55 (percent of the) districts in the state approve the change it will be a required change.”
