Since 2015, the motto for Paducah Public Schools is to know every child by name and need. Corbin Snardon aims to put that motto into action.

The district recently hired Snardon as the Title One counselor, a federally funded position new to the district which will help students who might "fall through the cracks."

"Those are your kids that you might see in the free and reduced lunch population and high-poverty situations where they perform just enough to get by but not really at their full potential," Snardon said. "My goal is to identify those kids as early as possible, and see that they are succeeding in their classes and performing at grade-level."
 
Paducah Public Schools Announces STOP! Tipline
Safety is our first priority. In an effort to use every available resource to STOP bullying and other risky behaviors in our schools, Paducah Public Schools announces the implementation of the “Safety Tipline Online Prevention” or STOP! Tipline. The STOP! Tipline is designed for use as an "online" reporting/prevention tool which is provided free by the Kentucky Center for School Safety. If students, parents or community members know of an unsafe situation in school (bullying, weapons, drugs or alcohol, etc.), they can anonymously pass on that information to school personnel by using this basic email format.

The Paducah School Board had a busy evening Tuesday, highlighted by its decision to reduce the general fund tax rate from last year's 79.9 cents to 79.7 cents.

The new tax rate is expected to produce revenue of $9.6 million.

"We're excited that for the second year in a row we can recommend a decrease in our local taxes," said Paducah Superintendent Donald Shively. "As we've done that, we've tried to be great stewards of our taxpayers' dollars and at the same time be efficient."
