The Owensboro School Board voted unanimously to support raising the high school drop out age to 18-years-old.
On Monday, Governor Beshear signed a bill to raise the high school dropout age from 16 to 18.
The bill allows school districts to choose whether to increase the dropout age.
But after 55% of school districts sign on, it would be required statewide.
