Mark your calendars. Fayette County Public Schools has set the Graduation dates for the class of 2019.

Monday, June 3, 2019
Paul Laurence Dunbar High School 10:00 a.m.
Tates Creek High School 1:30 p.m.
Bryan Station High School 5:00 p.m.

Tuesday, June 4, 2019
Frederick Douglass High School 10:00 a.m.
Henry Clay High School 1:30 p.m.
Lafayette High School 5:00 p.m.

Pending the Board of Education approval on April 11, 2019, Superintendent Caulk will ask that May 31st be the last day of school for students. This would mean students would not make up the March 8th snow day. Teachers and staff will make the day up with the exact date to be determined by the Board of Ed on April 11.

Under state law, the school calendar must have at least 170 days and 1,062 hours of instruction. With this recommended revision, Fayette County Public Schools will have 176 instructional days and exceed the required hours.
