Teacher sickout continues Thursday in Jefferson, other counties

Teachers in Jefferson County, Kentucky’s largest public school district continued their sickout on Thursday in protest of lawmakers’ actions in the General Assembly.

School district officials made the announcement Wednesday night.

Fayette County Public Schools, which closed one day last week due to teacher absences, stayed open on Wednesday and Thursday. District spokeswoman Lisa Deffendall said late Wednesday that the number of current Fayette teacher “absences are typical for this time of year.”

The Fayette County Education Association at 10 p.m. Wednesday posted a message on social media saying that group and the Kentucky Education Association were not calling for a teacher sickout Thursday. The Fayette school district and FCEA would be sending teachers and support staff to Frankfort through next week, the post said.
