Local school district working to hire more minorities
Paducah Independent Schools says it’s working to hire more minorities.
At a meeting on Monday, school board members talked about reaching out to minority education majors during their sophomore and junior years. They plan to network with these students and invite them to be student teachers in the district.
Currently, the district has 455 people on staff. Out of that, 112 consider themselves minorities. That’s less than 25 percent of district employees.
