Fayette County Public Schools

A ribbon cutting for a new elementary school in Fayette County provided an opportunity to again recognize the contributions of a public servant, Brenda Cowen, who died in the line of duty. 

More than 400 students will enter the doors of Brenda Cowan Elementary this week when the school officially opens. 


After close to a half century at its current Main Street location, Fayette County School administrators are planning a move to a new location.  The school board has approved a plan to leave the historic central office building and move into an existing 187,000 square foot office building on Lexmark property near Russell Cave Road.
