Kentucky Schools Offered Opioid Blocker

Aug 15, 2016


With classes underway in many sections of Kentucky, school officials are considering stocking a life-saving drug.  It is being used to reverse the effects of an opioid related overdose.

The bitterly cold temperatures have led several school districts in Kentucky to cancel classes.

New statewide, end-of-course, assessment exams begin this coming school year for Kentucky high school students.   The tests were authorized in education reforms approved by Kentucky lawmakers in 2009.  The statewide tests measure student achievement in graduation-required courses of English, Algebra, Biology and U.S. History.
