Dylan Howard, who teaches 8th grade Social Studies at Paducah Middle School, spoke to the McCracken County Commission about the positive impact of the Community Scholarship on his education at their meeting on March 28. Howard was part of a group from West Kentucky Community and Technical College who were present at the meeting to receive a donation from the McCracken County Commission for the Community Scholarship Program. Howard (PTHS '16) attended WKCTC and MSU to earn a degree in education. "As a Paducah native and Tilghman graduate, WKCTC's Community Scholarship Program gave me the opportunity to attend school without the crippling debt that comes with college," Howard said. "After graduating from Murray State in 2020, I found myself giving back to the same community that supported me. The Community Scholarship Program has given me opportunities that I never dreamed could be my reality." The Community Scholarship Program provides scholarship funding for up to 60 credit hours toward a technical certification and/or an associate degree at West Kentucky Community and Technical College, enabling students to complete two years of college tuition-free.

Dear PPS Parents and Guardians, Beginning tomorrow, Wednesday, March 2, 2022, Paducah Public Schools is relaxing masking requirements. Masks will be optional in all school settings, including on buses. On Monday, district leadership received an updated recommendation from the Kentucky Department for Public Health regarding masking from the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) focused on COVID-19 community levels. Combined with the new recommendations, our district leadership has reviewed the local positivity rates, the Kentucky Incidence Rate Map, the number of COVID patients in our local hospitals, and our total number of positive cases in McCracken County. There is a significant decrease in all these measures compared to a month ago. We also see significant decreases in the number of COVID positive students and staff compared to a month ago. As outlined in the guidance, our schools will maintain the following baseline strategies: Students and staff are encouraged to remain up to date with COVID-19 vaccinations - 5-day isolation followed by 5-day masking for individuals with COVID-19 - Sick individuals should stay home - On-site testing remains available for sick or exposed persons Thank you for your support and encouragement as we continue to work together for the health and safety of each and every child. Sincerely, Dr. Donald Shively, Superintendent Paducah Public Schools
