Meet our Superintendent

Welcome, please take a few moments to read about our Great School.

Paducah ISD is a rural school district located in Cottle County Texas. Paducah is the only school in Cottle County from at least 8 that were here in the early 1900's. Paducah School was established in 1907. Today we educate around 200 students in grades PK- 12 all in the same building. All students have the same opportunities to learn and participate in one of our many co-curricular activities, including: FFA, BPA, FCCLA, NHS, UIL academics,  cheerleading, football, volleyball, basketball, track, golf, tennis, and band. Students are exposed to technology in all grades, using computers, iPads, and digital video cameras. Students in grades 6-12 are issued laptops for school use including accessing curriculum solely online. We have 22 teachers who are dedicated to teaching every child and assisting the child in reaching their educational potential. Additional support staff members work 1:1 or in small groups with students in various ways to provide assistance. 

If you are interested in attending or having your child attend Paducah ISD please contact the Campus office at 806-492-2009.
