BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (WBKO) - On March 24, Gov. Andy Beshear signed into law Senate Bill 128, which creates the Supplemental School Year Program.
This emergency legislation allows any K-12 student enrolled during the 2020-2021 school year to use the 2021-2022 school year as a supplemental year to retake or supplement courses or grades the student already has taken.

- It is recommended that before students and parents make a decision about whether or not a graduated senior will request 2021-2022 as a supplemental year, they consult guidance provided by the KHEAA, the CPE and the Kentucky High School Athletic Association.
In order for our district to address the student’s needs in the areas of staff, schedule, and curriculum, we need to know which students are considering this option.
Please complete the form on or before May 1, 2021 only if you are interested in requesting the supplemental school year. If you have any questions, please contact us at 270-781-5150.
