Starting Wednesday the drop-out age in Kentucky schools rises to 18 years old. That means some 17 year old drop-outs will have to return to class this fall. The General Assembly passed the law during the last session raising the drop-out age from 16 to 18. It’s not known how many that may affect statewide, but in Bullitt County there are only 11 students age 17 who will be required to return to school. The district is reaching out to those students to let them know of the change in the law and its preparing for their return. There are more than 13,000 students in the Bullitt County Schools.
