A "Thank You" From Paducah Public Schools and McCracken County Schools

Through good times, bad times, and all the times in between, public schools do so much more than educate children. Public schools are community schools. We offer vital resources and support to families, because that’s what’s best for kids. Often, it’s easy to overlook the good things going on behind the scenes and beyond the classroom. Here’s a snapshot of why public schools matter, by the numbers: 

As we mark the one-year anniversary of our schools being closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, McCracken County Schools and Paducah Public Schools want to thank our faculty, staff, and community for the determination and flexibility they displayed as we worked together to reach beyond our classrooms and schools into our communities to continue the mission of reaching each student to provide the resources needed to continue to learn and succeed.

Paducah Public Schools to Offer In-Person Four Day Week Beginning March 8

Students who attend Paducah Public Schools will have the option to attend  in-person for a four-day school week beginning March 8.
The Paducah Board of Education voted unanimously to make the change after reviewing surveys from parents and teachers and the data regarding COVID-19 rates of infection in the region at a special called meeting on February 26.

Students who choose the in-person option will attend school four days per week. There will be one day of virtual learning per week. The board asked that faculty and parents be surveyed to determine whether it would be best to keep the virtual day on Wednesday or move it to Friday. 

Virtual students will continue to have the option to stay all virtual.

NTI Days Added to School Calendar for February 25 and 26

The Paducah Board of Education has voted to change Thursday, February 25 and Friday, February 26 on the school calendar from In-Person to Non-Traditional Instruction (Virtual) days.  


PPS faculty and staff will receive the second dose of the COVID-19 vaccine on February 24.  The second dose of the vaccine has typically created harsher side effects than the first dose. Changing February 25 and 26 to NTI days will allow faculty and staff who experience harsher side effects from the second dose to work from home.


The Paducah Board of Education began discussions about allowing students to attend in-person four days per week at the February 15 meeting. Those discussions will continue.
