Fayette County Public Schools Community for Creativity positions students as creators, leveraging collaboration and ingenuity to connect students to the creative economy. A core tenet of the Community for Creativity is developing and supporting a student’s ability to create original ideas, concepts, and content.

We're changing the way students engage in the classroom. We believe that every student can create, in any subject area, new ideas and content to better themselves and the world around them. Classroom conversations change from “What are we learning today” to “What are we creating today?” Program fundamentals include:

Creative Exploration

Collaboration

Relevant Connections

Check out the unique student perspectives of students involved in the Community for Creativity pilot program.

Fayette County Public Schools is committed to building a community “where excellence and creativity merge.” The Community for Creativity framework highlights the implementation of this vision across the system at the school and county level.
