OC schools in no rush to raise dropout age

-A A +A

District already curbing dropouts with intervention programs

By Zach Osowski

Oldham County Schools Superintendent Will Wells said the district is in no hurry to implement a new state law raising the age students can drop out of high school.
Senate Bill 97 raised the legal age for dropouts from 16 to 18 earlier this year. The new law was a voluntary mandate until it was adopted by 55 percent of the state’s school corporations. Last week, 96 school corporations adopted the law, which means it will be effective in every district by the 2017-18 school year.
