(WHAS 11)--The best district in the state of Kentucky at avoiding school dropouts is once again taking the lead on keeping kids in school.
Taylor County’s Board of Education is holding a meeting at midnight June 24th.
The district was the first in the state to pass board policy raising the dropout age from 16 to 18.
But they did that before the state gave them legal control to do so - so they'll meet tonight to officially pass the measure.
The midnight meeting will make Taylor County first in line to qualify for new state grant money.
The meeting is set for midnight at the Board Offices in Campbellsville.
For the fourth year in a row the district reported zero dropouts.
