Graduation bill OK’d

Sen. Ken Winters has gotten legislation through the Senate that would allow some high school students to graduate early so that they can enter college.

The Murray Republican, a former college president, said only students with high ACT scores and a 3.2 grade point average would be eligible.

About $ 2,500 in state funding that would have gone to their school district would instead go to the college where they enroll for tuition.

Winters said the proposal, which passed 35-1, also requires participating students to have high achievement test scores and to have 18 credits, including two advanced placement or international baccalaureate classes. (AP)
