Magoffin County Board of Education is the local educational agency (LEA) for the Magoffin County School District. The district is comprised of 1 high school (grades 9-12), 1 middle school (grades 7-8), and 6 elementary schools (grades K-6).

Ground breaking ceremonies for 2 new elementary schools were held in August 2006. The construction of these 2 elementary schools will consolidate 5 outlying elementary schools into 2 new facilities.
