LEXINGTON, Ky. (WTVQ)- The proposed high school graduation requirements has unanimously been passed by the Kentucky Board of Education.
The proposal will move on for legislative approval.
The Kentucky School Boards Association released a statement regarding the vote. Here is their statement:
The proposal benefited from public comment and KSBA believes it would have benefited further from additional review and fiscal impact analysis, especially in light of the most recent changes. Our concerns on behalf of local school boards over inequities and unintended consequences at the district level – the same ones echoed by other education groups throughout the Commonwealth – warranted further discussion. Now legislators will have an opportunity to carefully review all aspects of the proposal. KSBA will work with our partners in the General Assembly as they undertake these measures.
