List of school districts in Kentucky

In Kentucky, there are two types of public school districts. The first type, county school districts, typically cover all or a large part of a county, and are generally styled "XXXX County (Public) Schools." The second type, "independent" districts, usually encompass cities or groups of cities. These have several different styles, but with one detail in common—"County" is nowhere to be found in the district name. All independent districts operate within a single county, with the following exceptions:
* Caverna, which serves two adjoining cities on separate sides of the boundary between Barren and Hart Counties
* Corbin, which serves a single city divided between Whitley and Knox Counties.
*There is some question as to whether the Fairview or Russell district overlaps into another county. An official map of the Fairview district, located in Boyd County, seems to indicate that it overlaps into a small area of Greenup County. However, the official map of the adjacent Russell district in Greenup County includes the aforementioned overlap, plus a small area within Boyd County. To see maps of these and other independent school districts in Kentucky, see [http://www.revenue.ky.gov/business/maps.htm this page at the Kentucky Department of Revenue] .

All county districts operate schools from kindergarten through 12th grade. Most independent districts also do so; however, a few do not operate high schools. Students in those districts attend high school in the district whose area overlaps with the independent district. If a district does not operate high schools, the district that its students will go to at that level will be noted below it.

The Department of Defense Education Activity, through a subagency known as Domestic Dependent Elementary and Secondary Schools (DDESS), operates schools for military dependents at two major United States Army bases in Kentucky, Fort Campbell and Fort Knox. DDESS has organized a Kentucky-specific district to administer the schools on those bases (although some of the Fort Campbell schools are physically located in Tennessee).
