WKCTC Still Providing Classes After Probe
PADUCAH, KY - After state officials said West Kentucky Community & Technical College could lose its contract to provide adult education services because of falsely reported test scores, school officials say WKCTC will keep providing those classes.
Janett Blythe told The Paducah Sun WKCTC won a bid this month to keep providing those services to residents of McCracken and Graves counties.
The state began investigating the school after a complaint that test scores were being altered. An audit found inaccuracies with student academic level gain percentages over at least three years, which allowed the school to collect $137,324 for which it wasn't qualified. WKCTC president Barbara Veazey said the school cooperated with the investigation into matter. Records show that at least seven employees resigned amid the probe.
