If the Board of Trustees adopts the recommended school tax rate of 99 cents, the following statement will be factual, the Law requires this notice to be posted prior to the adoption, with this exact wording. The meeting to adopt the tax rate and set the budget is Thursday August 28th at 7 p.m.; with a public hearing / discussion regarding the tax rate and budget to be held on the same day at 6:45 p.m. in Room 462 of the School building located at 810 Goodwin Avenue, Paducah Texas.

 “PADUCAH ISD ADOPTED A TAX RATE THAT WILL RAISE MORE TAXES FOR MAINTENANCE AND OPERATIONS THAN LAST YEAR’S TAX RATE.”

 “THE TAX RATE WILL EFFECTIVELY BE RAISED BY 4.2 PERCENT AND WILL RAISE TAXES FOR MAINTENANCE AND OPERATIONS ON A $100,000 HOME BY APPROXIMATELY $ -50.00.”

As you can see by the notice the actual amount a homeowner is expected to pay is projected to be less than last year 2013-14.

Meet our Superintendent

Our students and staff have been hard at it for 12 weeks now. The last 6 weeks is filled with activities, FFA, 4H, basketball, band, music, and UIL. Participants from PK all the way through 12th grade are competing performing and showcasing their talents for all of us to enjoy. We are a blessed school to have the students we have that are willing to step out on a stage, court, or classroom and risk failure for the taste of victory. We live in a world that has long forgotten the individuals who have overcome daily life to be successes away from the stage provided by television or social media. Please get out and support the children of Paducah as they give their best, applaud them, give them a high five, tell them how proud your are, how happy you are for them to be participating in whatever activity(ies) they choose. In my opinion we have lost a social connection with each other, society has become more coarse, we have lost respect for individuals because we do not know them, see them, talk with them. Children deserve people who will stand up for them, who will be cheerleaders for them, win or lose, to appreciate them as individuals. 

As I end my 6th year as superintendent of Paducah ISD I wish you all Happy Thanksgiving,  the peace of Christmas, and the Blessings of God in the New Year.
