Who we are
Here in the Fayette County Public Schools, we believe that "it's about kids." Our school district exists to serve some 40,000 students from the Lexington metro area, and every decision we make – from the board room to the classroom – is based on doing what's best for our kids.
Our nearly 6,200 dedicated employees share a common goal of providing a world-class education for each and every child – and it shows. Time and again, our students and staff members earn state and national accolades in academic, athletic and professional contests.
We are blessed with amazing support from our families, business community and civic leaders, who are all intent on creating a positive environment for students to learn and succeed.
