Superintendent's Blog: Innovation Hub Part 2: Connecting to the Goals for Student Learning
Our elementary schools, along with Head Start, will be holding their spring sports days this week and one of the events they will do is the three-legged race. Have you ever done that? It’s the race where you have a partner, and you and your partner’s legs are tied together to create a third leg. It’s harder to run with three legs than it looks, and it takes coordination between you and your partner to synchronize your gait and stay upright!

There are three goals for student learning in our strategic plan. They are:

1) Engage every student in meaningful and relevant learning that prepares them to pursue college and career aspirations.
2) Engage every student in opportunities that create effective problem solvers, preparing them for leadership in work and life.
3) Build and align systems to put students in charge of their own learning and measuring individual growth.

In the previous post I made the connection between the Innovation Hub concept and the first goal for Student Learning in our strategic plan. In this post I want to talk about how the Innovation Hub concept coordinates with student learning goals two and three.

The three goals for Student Learning are like the “three” legs in the three-legged race. Each leg is dependent on the other and all three legs have to be in sync for there to be forward momentum.

Tilghman continues dominance in region track and field

The Paducah Sun, May 11, 2017
Used with permission.

For Travis Myers, succeeding in the pole vault is just his way of carrying on the family legacy. The senior Paducah Tilghman pole vaulter bested his personal record twice at Wednesday's Class 2A, Region 1 Track and Field Championships. Tilghman easily won the meet and yet another regional championship, with Myers playing his part by winning the pole vault competition. His jump of 14 feet, 6 inches tied the school record. He entered the day with a personal record of 14-1, but improved upon that twice on Wednesday. "I'm just going for the school record and fulfilling what my grandpa taught me. Our whole family pole vaulted," he said. "My grandpa competed at Purdue, my cousin at Alabama and my dad in high school." A niche sport, pole vault became Myers' go-to sport in eighth grade. Nowadays, pole vault and ROTC are what primarily take up his time, he said. It's shown, as Myers' top pole vault jump is second in Class 2A. He, of course, has aspirations of a state championship in his event, but team comes first.
