At its Aug. 7 meeting in Frankfort, the Kentucky Board of Education (KBE) discussed the development and implementation of Kentucky’s new 5-star school rating system, which will go live in September after the 2018-2019 K-PREP test scores are released.

Associate Commissioner Rhonda Sims and Division Director Jennifer Stafford of the Office of Standards, Assessment and Accountability provided an update on the system. Using data from the 2018-2019 school year, Kentucky’s accountability system will provide an overall rating for each school, district and the state ranging from 1 (the lowest) to 5 (the highest) stars. The star rating, along with other important education data, will be available on the new Kentucky School Report Card.

Tremayne Donald Named Paducah Tilghman Head Baseball Coach
Tremayne Donald Named Paducah Tilghman Head Baseball Coach
Tremayne Donald was introduced as head coach for Paducah Tilghman High School baseball at a press conference held at PTHS on August 6.

Donald, a Paducah Tilghman alumnus, had an exceptional career as a three sport athlete (basketball, football, and baseball) in high school.  In football, Donald was an honorable mention High School All American, and in baseball he was named to the Kentucky High School All Star Team. After graduation Donald was drafted into major league baseball by the St. Louis Cardinals.

Donald has over 21 years of experience as a baseball coach, and has coached high school baseball at Community Christian Academy and Ballard Memorial High School. He has served as Director of Operations for five years for Kentucky Prospects Baseball.  

“It is an honor and privilege to stand before you today,” said Donald. “Through all my experiences in life I believe that God was preparing me for this very day when I would be named the head coach at the school my life has always centered around – Paducah Tilghman High School. To my players, let me say that I was that little boy who couldn’t wait to wear the Tilghman uniform. We are Paducah Tilghman, and you will come to understand what that means. We as a team will never take lightly the deep, rich tradition that is Paducah Tilghman.”

PTHS band stays in tune with the 'End of the World'
PTHS band stays in tune with the 'End of the World'

The Paducah Tilghman High School marching band will start this year's show with the end of the world -- but things get better after that.

James Gregory, who begins his fifth year as the PTHS band director, said the theme for this year's program, which will be performed during football halftimes and band competitions, is "A World Reborn."

"We're kind of playing off the nature aspect of it," Gregory said. "We're starting off with REM's 'It's the End of the World as We Know It (And I Feel Fine).' We're taking the approach that this is the end of the world -- everything's getting blown up and what have you.

"The second tune that we're playing is 'Allegro barbaro' by Bela Bartok, and that's kind of saying that people have screwed up the world and we're kind of upset about it. Then, our ballad piece is going to be Michael Jackson's 'Human Nature,' where we start asking questions about why these things are happening. Then, our closer is 'Down Comes the Rain,' which is a piece written by Hidden Citizens, where the world resets itself."
