Paducah Public Schools will keep Wednesday as a virtual (NTI) day for all students after reviewing input from faculty, staff, and parents.
The Paducah Board of Education voted to allow in-person students to return to classes for a four-day week beginning March 8. 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 a different day.
Superintendent Donald Shively said that he appreciated the feedback and that the survey response had been valuable in helping the board evaluate the proposed change.
“As we reviewed the survey results, there wasn’t a significant request to move from our current NTI day,” Shively said. “In a year of constant change, this is a way for us to keep something consistent going forward. I hope that we will continue to see the community rate of infection drop so we can focus on making a strong finish to this school year.”
