Senate Bill 128
Mayfield Independent School District
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, also referred to as KY SB 128 and known by some as the “redshirt” or the “do-over” bill, 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. Students who choose this option can retake and/or supplement coursework already completed.
Our 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. These requests must be submitted to our board office by April 30, 2021. The student and/or parents may rescind this request at any time before May 31st, 2021.
Our school board is required to make a decision by June 1st, 2021 on whether to approve all or none of the requests for SB 128. School districts are not allowed to decide on an individual basis. If our board members decide to accept requests for a supplemental year, we will accept all requests and if we decide not to accept requests for a supplemental year, we will accept no requests.
Below are a few considered benefits and concerns surrounding the SB 128 decision for your child:
