School boards plan midnight meetings to secure grant money

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- School districts now have the chance to receive a $10,000 state grant, and some are taking an unnecessary step to try and get it.

Under new state law, school districts can choose to increase the dropout age from 16 to 18, and June 25th is the first date districts can vote on it.

The first 57 districts that make the change will be awarded a $10,000 state grant.

To try and secure the grants for their districts, some school boards have set meetings for midnight on June 25th in an effort to win the grant.

But the education department says the adoption won't be uploaded until sometime on June 26th in order to give all 174 districts an equal chance regardless of time zone.
