Dear FCS Faculty and Staff,

Last night, at its regular meeting, the Fleming County Board of Education approved the re-organization of the district office. The re-organization is the result of a resignation that occurred last week. The departure provided an opportunity for the district to evaluate current operations and determine the best way to provide strategic supports to each school. Furthermore, the re-organization of the district office will provide us an opportunity to implement more safeguards that will be released over the next several weeks.

Public Service Announcement 2-16-18

Dear Fleming Countians,

The district has been notified of an indirect threat that has occurred through social media.  Again, this is an indirect threat from a student who is no longer attending a Fleming County School.  This threat is directed toward a school in another state, but out of an abundance of safety, we are following necessary protocols.  Local authorities are already involved and working with other necessary authorities.  One of our students alerted administrators at Simons Middle School and they immediately started investigating and implementing necessary protocols.  We have released on Simons Middle School's Facebook page a statement so that parents, guardians, students, and faculty & staff are aware of the indirect threat.

How Pension Issues Impact Our Students Fleming County Schools

For Immediate Release 10.11.2017

Retiring the Attention on Little Johnny and Susie

The health of our public pension system is extremely important to the Commonwealth educationally and economically. As a state with a top-tier public education system, our success depends upon our ability to retain and recruit top educators and staff members. Unless you have had the privilege to be entrusted with the growth and development of our Commonwealth’s most precious asset, our children, it’s difficult to understand the demands of today's educators fully.

News Release FCS Logo

September 5, 2017

Fleming Countians,

On Wednesday, August 30, 2017, it was brought to my attention that some trophies at the high school had been discarded and thrown in the garbage. To be clear, this was never the intention, but a result of poor communication coming from the district office. When the decision was made to throw items away that had been stored for more than a year in storage containers, due to mold and moisture concerns, we were unaware that trophies were in the construction storage containers.

School Closing - August 21, 2018 School Closed

Fleming County Schools will be closed on Monday, August 21, 2017, as a result of the upcoming Solar Eclipse. This decision was made with a focus on student safety after reviewing information from our insurance agent, discussions with other leaders in Kentucky, and monitoring decisions made by other school districts across the state. Early dismissal was not an option as buses would have been on the road during or close to the end of the Solar Eclipse which places students and bus drivers in harm’s way unnecessarily.

VBS Appreciation VBS Appreciation

Dear Fleming Countians,

As the start of school, quickly approaches and summer fun, camps, and vacations end, I wanted to take the time to express my appreciation to the many individuals, organizations, and, in particular, the churches involved in providing summer learning and engagement opportunities for students. Vacation Bible School, a piece of America’s fabric, still provides enrichment opportunities for youth that are needed in their development to become good students and model citizens.

Website Redesign We are FC

Dear Fleming Countians,

The new Fleming County Schools website is designed for students, teachers, staff members, parents/guardians and the community. The website is the information center for the district. As you may notice, the district’s homepage has undergone an extensive remodel.  During the 2016-2017 school year, the district met with several parents, teachers, staff and community members to collect feedback on the information they felt should be posted on the district’s homepage. Using this feedback, the information anchored on the website garnered the most support and interest. To be clear, we listened to our people, parents, and community, as we wanted to create a site that was used extensively by all.

Fleming County Preschool & Head Start Registration FCS Logo

The Fleming County Schools Preschool and Fleming County Head Start are still taking applications for 3 and 4 year olds for the State Funded Preschool and Head Start Programs for the 2017-18 school year.  To be eligible for either program, a child must be four years of age on or before August 1st and meet income guidelines.  Children ages three or four who can be identified through testing as having special needs or developmental delays, or who may already have an IEP in place may also be eligible.  Tuition preschool may be offered, depending on parental interest and availability of slots.
