W. Ky. community college to keep offering adult-ed

PADUCAH, Ky. (AP) - The West Kentucky Community & Technical College has resolved issues around inaccurately reported test scores that led to the facility returning funds to the state.

Janett Blythe told The Paducah Sun that WKCTC won a bid this month to keep providing adult education services to residents of McCracken and Graves counties. State officials had said previously that WKCTC could lose its contract.

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 it wasn't qualified for.

WKCTC president Barbara Veazey said the school cooperated with the investigation into matter.

Records show that at least seven employees resigned amid the probe.
