Kentucky school districts are racing to adopt the new “Graduate Kentucky” standard to keep students attending school through age 18 or until they earn a high school diploma. Since Tuesday, June 25, the first day for school boards to adopt the policy, 75 districts, including Marion County, have updated the antiquated compulsory attendance standard of age 16.
Governor Steve Beshear, First Lady Jane Beshear and Education Commissioner Terry Holliday commended the districts for their speed in changing their policies.
