What are the demographics of your district?

Shelby County Public Schools serves the students of Shelby County, Kentucky. Shelbyville, our county seat and the "Saddlebred Capital of the World," is approximately 32 miles east of Louisville.  Colonel Harland Sanders (founder of Kentucky Fried Chicken) spent the last twenty years of his life here in Shelby. Martha Layne Collins (first female governor of Kentucky) moved to Shelbyville as a sixth grader; Martha Layne Collins High School was named in her honor.  For more information on Shelby County, visit its official tourism website.

Our district has nearly 7,000 students and well over 400 certified educators.  The district consists of thirteen schools: one preschool, six elementary, two middle, and four high schools.  These high schools include our Area Technology Center and Big Picture Learning Academy, currently the only Big Picture program in Kentucky.  Dr. James Neihof has been the district's superintendent since 2008.

For school addresses, phone numbers and links to their direct school websites, see the school directory.

Recently, we have gained regional acclaim for our 1:1 technology integration as well as our academic innovative programs.
