Kentucky schools are responding to the new law promoting a higher dropout age.

The law hit the books Tuesday.

So far 54 school districts have voted to up their dropout ages.

And they will each get a $10,000 grant for doing it.

The change is voluntary right now.

But it becomes mandatory once 55% of schools sign on.

The law gradually raises the dropout age from 16 to 18.
