Dropout age to increase statewide

-A A +A

HCS, EIS, LCS early adopters of policy

By Kelly Cantrall

A month after school districts were able to change the compulsory attendance age for students, the threshold required to implement the policy statewide has been surpassed

As of the last tally, 107 districts had raised the age, which keeps students in school until 18. Districts began voting on the policy change at the end of June.

Senate Bill 97, signed into law by Gov. Steve Beshear in March, required all districts to adopt the compulsory attendance age of 18 once 55 percent of the state’s districts voluntarily chose to do so.
