Members of the Paducah Independent School District held a work session Monday in which they heard updates for the proposed Innovation Hub, a facility to help more students better prepare for the working world.

The work session took place at the district office prior to the school board meeting.
D. Robert Deal, the president of JRA Architects of Lexington, presented a plan for the two-story building, with plans to connect it to Paducah Tilghman High School at the auxiliary gym. The building is planned to be about 96,000 square feet and will replace the Paducah Area Technical Center. Classrooms will include carpentry, welding, auto body and auto tech areas, but added to the building will be engineering, health science, art and pottery, information technology and computer-aided design (CAD) classrooms along with a robotics lab.
