Fayette County Board of Education chairman John Price, who is on medical leave, plans to return soon, Superintendent Tom Shelton said.
Price, whose leave was approved by the board on an "as-needed basis," has missed meetings since Nov. 25.
"We keep him updated by providing videotapes of our meetings and correspondence of items and issues happening within the district." Shelton said.
Vice-chairwoman Melissa Bacon has presided over meetings in Price's absence.
Fayette schools spokeswoman Lisa Deffendall said she could provide no other details.
Price did not immediately respond to requests for comment Tuesday.
According to the district's website, Price was appointed to the board in 2003 and was elected in 2004, 2008 and 2012.
