Supplementary classroom materials, field trips, motivational speakers and workshops, the development of innovative educational techniques, faculty development and incentives, in-service for staff, student support, principal’s discretionary funds to meet needs of individual children (when meeting the needs of an individual child will further the educational goals of many children).

Paducah Innovation Hub
The $26.4 million, two-story Paducah Innovation Hub opened its doors to students in late August 2020. It’s more than just a trade school or technical school, but rather several things at once, considering the roughly 100,000 square-foot building’s versatile classrooms and programs. It also houses the Paducah school board office along with the STEAM coffee bar, NROTC class with shooting range, and other spaces, such as an abilities classroom.
