Paducah Public Schools Show Improvement in Scores on 1014-15 Kentucky School Report Card
Paducah Public Schools made steady progress in 2014-15, according to the Kentucky Department of Education’s Kentucky School Report Card, which was released October 1.

The overall score for the district was 64, an improvement of 1.1 over the 2013-14 score of 62.9. The score placed the district in the 56th percentile of schools in the commonwealth, and met the Annual Measureable Objective (AMO) set by the state. Superintendent Donald Shively said he was pleased to receive the results and to build on the successes that were found there.

"We will use the information we get back from this to build better students, to build better teachers, to build better administrators and to build better schools. The goal is always to improve," Shively said.

Paducah Tilghman High School was classified as a Proficient*/Progressing* school. Tilghman’s overall score for 2014-15 was 71.4, which met the state AMO and exceeded the 2013-14 score of 70.2 by 1.2 points. Shively said he was pleased to see a healthy jump in the percentage of students at Tilghman who are college and/or career ready.

“All these benchmarks from kindergarten through twelth grade are extremely important,” said Shively, “but the most important question is are we producing students who are college or career ready? In the past four years we’ve made some significant improvement, and this year we took an almost ten percent jump.”
