Senate Bill 128
Families should have already received communication from Fayette County Public Schools about a new state law that allows students to redo this school year. Known as “Senate Bill 128,” or the “Supplemental School Year” program, this is a one-time opportunity for families who would like their students to repeat their current grade level in order to supplement their learning. Families who are interested in this option have until 11:59 p.m. on May 1 to submit a request form to the school district. The Fayette County Board of Education will then vote to either accept all or none of the applications. More information, including links to the request form in multiple languages are available at www.fcps.net/sb128. If you are concerned about the progress your child has made this year, I would encourage you to schedule a time to meet with us here at school. We are committed to the success of every student and want to work in partnership with our families to ensure our students are prepared to excel not only in school, but also in life.
