LEXINGTON, Ky. (LEX 18) — The Fayette County Board of Education has agreed to change this year's school year, making Wednesday, May 27, the last day of school for students.

Also, May 19, which was originally a day off for students due to the primary election, is now an NTI day for distance learning.

According to Fayette County Schools officials, school districts must complete a minimum of 1,062 instructional hours, and the state Department of Education will allow each non-traditional learning day to count as seven hours.

Fayette County Public Schools exceeds that minimum requirement, allowing the board to make the decision to end the school year earlier.
