Newport Independent Schools Supplemental School Year Application

With the passage of Senate Bill 128 Kentucky families may apply for a supplemental school year.  This legislation is in response to pandemic-related disruptions in the past two school years. The supplemental school year allows students to repeat, retake, or supplement courses or graded levels already completed. All applications must be submitted to the Newport Board of Education by 3 PM May 1, 2021 for consideration. The application may be rescinded at any time before 3 PM May 20, 2021. 

The Newport Independent Board of Education will review the applications and make a determination by June 1, 2021 for SB 128 requests. 

School districts are not allowed to decide on an individual basis. If our school district decides to accept requests for a supplemental year, we will accept all requests.  If our district decides not to accept requests for a supplemental year, we will accept no requests.

A separate application must be submitted for each child.
