The district serves all of Fayette County, which is coextensive with the city of Lexington.


Board of Education[edit]

The Fayette County Board of Education consists of members elected to four year terms from five districts, as well as the Superintendent. Districts 1, 3, and 5 hold elections in presidential election years, while Districts 2, and 4 hold elections in mid-term years.

The board holds two meetings each month, both open to the public. The first meeting of the month is an agenda planning meeting, while official action is taken at the second meeting. The second meeting of each month is televised locally on cable channel 13 and streamed on the district's Web site.
