We believe that all community members have a stake in their public schools. The cornerstone of a strong community is a quality public education system. Community prosperity, both quality of life and economic growth, results from increased educational excellence. Studies show that education leads to better, more stable jobs that pay higher income and allow families to accumulate wealth that can be used to improve health. With nearly 90% of school aged children in Lexington attending Fayette County Public Schools, we believe investing in our children is investing in the future of our schools, community and society.
