McCracken County Public Schools


At a McCracken County Board of Education meeting last week, members deliberated without making a decision on whether to sell or lease the Farley Elementary School building after it closes later this year.

McCracken County Schools spokeswoman Jayme Jones said there was much deliberation during the closed door meeting last Thursday.


A McCracken County Schools screening committee has begun evaluating resumes and essay questions from 33 applicants to make a recommendation for the replacement for current superintendent, Nancy Waldrop, who has resigned effective June 30, 2014.


The McCracken County Public Schools Board of Education will meet Thursday night to discuss and vote on changes to the district facilities plan. Superintendent Nancy Waldrop will recommend moving Reidland Middle School students into the newer portion of the currently vacant Reidland High School for the 2014-2015 school year.


After concluding an investigation, the Kentucky General Assembly Office of Education Accountability has found McCracken County Public Schools and Superintendent Nancy Waldrop in violation of several statutes.

McCracken County Public Schools has named Molly Goodman and Elaine Kay assistant principals for McCracken County High School, rounding out the new school's administrative staff.

Goodman and Kay have nearly three decades of experience between them in the McCracken County school system.
