Paducah Public Schools

Paducah Public Schools is a school district located in Paducah, Kentucky. The district serves most, but not all, of the city of Paducah; significant areas within the city limits lie in the surrounding McCracken County school district.

The district, founded in 1864, currently educates slightly over 2,900 students in six schools, with approximately 240 teachers and a roughly equal number of support staff. Roughly 90% of graduates of the district's only high school, Paducah Tilghman High School, go on to either two-year or four-year colleges, a commendable total considering that about 50% of the district's students are minorities and nearly two-thirds are eligible for free or reduced-price school lunches.cite web | url= | title=District Information: About our district | publisher=Paducah Public Schools | accessmonthday=November 1 | accessyear=2006]
