Paducah City Schools preschool, alternative school set to relocate next year
"We are adding one teacher and one teaching assistant, which will allow us about 34 new slots for kiddos," Lewis said. "It's going to be wonderful. Paducah Public Schools has a focus on knowing every child by name and need, and that starts with preschool."
Cooper-Whiteside is largely move-in-ready for Paducah Head Start, but roughly $60,000 worth of renovations will need to be made to portions of the Tech Center to get it ready for Choices students. Director of Pupil Personnel Troy Brock said all necessary renovations should be done before Aug. 10, the first day of Paducah Public Schools' 2016-17 school year.
Brock also said the district is considering relocating its head of security from the middle school to the Tech Center to provide additional security. The bus arrival and departure times for Choices students will also be different from traditional students at the Tech Center and nearby Tilghman.
