LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - Superintendent Manny Caulk delivered his first ever State of the Fayette County Schools Address on Thursday. He focused on student achievement and community support to help ensure student success.
"Working together to achieve our vision, a common shared vision," Caulk said. "It takes that unified effort to make what we believe is possible and that's to create a world-class system of great schools."
During the address, school system officials handed out the 2016-2017 annual report to city and school leaders, along with community members. The report stated Fayette County Schools are growing by roughly 700 students per year.
The annual report also stated that 90 percent of school-aged children in the community are enrolled in the public school system.
The Kentucky Department of Education also issued a report that concluded Caulk has brought stability to the district and can help lead future improvements for the education system.
"I look at myself as just a catalyst for change. The real change agents were in this room. They are our schools. They are in our community. They are the families in our homes," the superintendent said.
