NOTE: Updated at 2:36pmCT with additional information about Dual Credit
From Dr. Pamela A. Stephens, Superintendent
Adair County Board of Education
Please find below information for students and parents to use while researching Senate Bill 128 and what that may mean for individual students.
A KEY point, a FORM must be submitted by May 1, 2021, for a student to qualify for this option. This FORM will be available on our districts website on April 12th and will only be available until Friday, midnight, April 30th.
Thank you for your sincere consideration of this option for your child or children.
Adair County Schools: Senate Bill 128 Supplemental Year Information
Here are a few resources to help you and your family make an informed decision on the provisions of Senate Bill 128 which could possibly allow a student a supplemental year.
Kentucky Senate Bill 128 has been approved by both chambers of the Kentucky General Assembly and signed into law by Governor Andy Beshear. This bill is also known by some as the "do-over" bill and allows K-12 students currently enrolled in public or non-public schools to request to use the 2021-2022 school year as a supplemental year.
Our school district wants to take this opportunity to share some of the facts related to this bill so that you can make an informed decision about whether you would choose to have your child request to use the supplemental year. Parent requests must be submitted by May 1st, 2021.
Our Board of Education will make a decision by June 1st, 2021 on whether to approve all or none of the requests. School districts are not allowed to decide on an individual basis according to the bill.
Here is a list of what may be considered benefits and concerns surrounding the SB 128 decision for your child:
According to Kentucky Dept. of Education guidance released on April 5, 2021,
"All students in the Supplemental School Year Program, including graduated students, are considered secondary students. However, pursuant to guidance from the Kentucky Council on Postsecondary Education (CPE), graduated seniors who return and wish to take postsecondary coursework during the 2021-2022 year must pursue dual enrollment (defined within KRS 164.002), rather than dual credit coursework. Furthermore, and pursuant to guidance from the Kentucky Higher Education Assistance Authority (KHEAA), it should be noted that students who graduate from high school during the 2020-2021 year are no longer considered high school students for scholarship purposes and, therefore, are not eligible for Dual Credit or Work Ready Dual Credit scholarships during the 2021-2022 year. As such, tuition for courses taken by graduated students will be determined by the postsecondary institution. High school graduates who desire to use their KEES awards for postsecondary expenses must be enrolled at the postsecondary level as regular postsecondary students who are subject to full tuition rates. Please also be advised that this credit cannot be used toward high school graduation requirements and GPA for graduated students."
