Kentucky to Offer Dropout Funding Assistance

Ranch Ehrlo Society

Kentucky’s education commissioner says all the state’s school districts have received letters from his office listing students who’ve dropped out of school, and now they need to devise plans to help those youngsters graduate.       

Terry Holliday says the Kentucky Department of Education is prepared to help.

“We will continue to have the dropout money about a half million a year, to continue supporting regional concepts to address alternative schools. We are really focused on career technical education.” –Terry Holliday   

Holliday says, effective with the 2015-16 school year, Kentucky districts will be required to recover every student who has dropped out of school.
