FCPS Registration for 2017-18 Begins in February

LEXINGTON, Ky. (WTVQ) – The first registration window for the 2017-18 academic year in Fayette County Public Schools runs Feb. 7-23 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. weekdays, plus 5 to 7 p.m. on Feb. 16. (If schools are closed because of bad weather, then registration is canceled.)

Per state regulations, any child who turns 5 on or before Aug. 1 may start kindergarten this fall, and Kentucky law requires youth between 6 and 18 years old to attend school.
