    Agriculture program receives Rising Sun grant

    Carter G. Woodson Academy’s agriculture program, one of the newest in Fayette County Public Schools, has received a one-time Rising Sun grant of $5,000 from the Kentucky FFA Foundation. The funds will help students participate in leadership conferences, career development events, and other FFA opportunities.

    The money will also cover a classroom set of FFA jackets that students can wear to competitions. “Just to see Carter G. Woodson across the back of the jacket will be a huge source of pride for our students,” said ag teacher Jacob Ball.

  • Student accident insurance available

    Fayette County Public Schools does not provide medical coverage for accidents at school. Therefore families may want to consider purchasing student accident insurance, which is voluntary. If families do not have other insurance, these student plans are an option. If students do have other coverage, the optional plans can help with deductibles and copays. Options include:
    • At-school accident only
    • 24-hour accident only
    • Extended dental coverage
    • Football coverage 

    This link for Student Accident Insurance details and the application is also under the Families tab on the district homepage.
