Members of the Christian County Board of Education have been invited by Kentucky Governor Steve Beshear, First Lady Jane Beshear and Commissioner of Education Terry Holliday to attend a special press conference and recognition ceremony in honor of school districts who have raised the compulsory school attendance age in Kentucky from 16 to 18.
Christian County Schools were among the first to adopt the policy during the “Blitz to 96” initiative, used to trigger statewide implementation. To date, 111 of Kentucky’s 173 school districts have made the change and more districts are scheduled to vote in the coming weeks.
The ceremony will be held on Thursday in Frankfort inside the State Capitol Building at 1:00 p.m. The ceremony will be attended by Board Chairman Barry Cornelius and Superintendent of Schools Mary Ann Gemmill.
