McCracken schools moving tech network

BY KATHLEEN FOX kfox@paducahsun.com

The McCracken County school board on Thursday approved the relocation of the district's technology network to McCracken County High School, which will save $35,000 to $50,000, according to Assistant Superintendent Heath Cartwright.

He said the move is essential due to the current location, on the central office property, being designated as surplus and the move to the currently empty Reidland Middle School scheduled for this summer.

In a brief special session Thursday morning at the central office, the board approved a proposal from CFSB of Calvert City for the district's banking services. The selection is a change from former provider Paducah Bank because CFSB's offer included the same services with better interest rates, according to Assistant Superintendent Johnna DeJarnett.

The board continued a contract with Apex Learning, which provides digital curriculum for the Open Campus alternative school at a cost of $39,700, according to Russ Tilford, director of pupil personnel. He said the district continues to expand its usage of the program and the agreement includes 300 licensees as well as professional development features.

The board approved minor revisions to the student code of conduct.

The next meeting will be at 5:30 p.m. June 19 at the central office.
