FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - The Kentucky Department of Education says school boards planning midnight meetings to be first in line for a $10,000 state grant will not have an advantage.

Several school districts have set meetings for midnight on June 25 in an effort to win a grant tied to adopting the new legal dropout age of 18. June 25 is the first date districts can vote to adopt the new dropout age, and the first 57 districts that make the change will be awarded a $10,000 state grant to help implement it.

But the education department says it has told school superintendents documents related to the adoption won't be uploaded until sometime on June 26 in order to give all 174 districts an equal chance regardless of time zone. is happy to provide a forum for commenting and discussion.
