New laws approved by during the Kentucky General Assembly's 2013 season that will affect public schools went into effect Tuesday.

Districts will now be able to decide if they want to raise the dropout age to 18 years old, beginning in the 2015-2016 school year. The increased dropout age will become mandatory statewide four years after 55% of Kentucky school districts adopt it.

House Bill 180 requires the Kentucky Board of Education to establish a statewide evaluation system for all certified personnel. The Department of Education, along with teacher and principal steering committees, will develop the system prior to the 2014-2015 school year.

Schools are also encouraged to have two epinephrine auto-injectors in case one is needed for a student with an allergic reaction.
