The board continued to ask for feedback on two topics: essential 21st century skills for graduates of PTHS and the current grading scale used by Paducah Public Schools. Under the current grading scale, an A is 94-100, a B is 83-93, a C is 70-82, a D is 62-69, and 61 and below is an F.

Members of the board will continue to receive input from parents and citizens at the remainder of their traveling meetings. December's meeting will be at Clark Elementary. The board will meet at Morgan Elementary on January 12 and at McNabb on February 9.

Action items on the agenda included approval of a contract with RBS Design Group to provide architectural and engineering services for the District Facility Plan.
