KALISPELL - The state of Montana has a new plan to keep kids in school.
Graduation Matters Montana is an initiative which focuses on every student in the state graduating from high school.
Montana Superintendent Denise Juneau explained how the state will promote this plan.
"Some public relation effort that will be part of our legislative package that we take to the next legislative session, and so hopefully working with some private entities to make sure we get this message out," she told us. "And then taking that statewide initiative and letting each community decide how they are going to promote that for themselves"
The legislative package will focus on compulsory attendance, which would raise the age students could leave school from 16 to 18.
