Senate Bill 128 - (Supplemental Year) Common Questions

In response to Kentucky Senate Bill 128 the district has put together a Common Questions document to help families decide whether or not to submit a request on behalf of their child.  Remember, all requests must be submitted online by May 1st, 2021 using the following link: Request for Supplemental Year of Education Form.

  1. What is Senate Bill 128?  What is the purpose of the Supplemental Year (Re-do) Bill?

In March of 2021, Governor Andy Beshear signed into law the “re-do bill”.  It allows any K-14 student enrolled during the 2020-21 school year to use the 2021-22 school year as a supplemental year to retake or supplement courses already taken.  SB 128’s intended purpose is not to give students an academic advantage, but to allow students to repeat courses they have previously taken during the ’20-’21 school year.

Senate Bill 128 - Request for Supplemental Year of Education for 2021-22

To our School Families:

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 “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. The student can retake and/or supplement coursework already completed.

Our school 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. Please be mindful of the dates below.

The Ashland Independent School District will be closed March 29th – April 2nd, 2021 for Spring Break.  The Food Service Department will NOT be serving meals during Spring Break.  The drive-thru system will resume services on Monday, April 5th, 2021 with revisions to our current locations.  Students choosing the virtual platform may receive meals at Paul G. Blazer High School.  All other sites will no longer provide drive-thru services. Any Ashland Independent student choosing the virtual learning platform may pick up meals at Blazer regardless of their home school.  The meal service times will remain the same.  We will serve from 11:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday.  On Monday and Wednesday each student will receive an additional breakfast and lunch for the non-service days.  In order to receive a meal, the child must be present OR the parent/guardian must present the student’s meal card to the food service worker at the time of meal pick-up.  This service format will continue through Friday, May 28, 2021
