Jefferson County Public Schools (JCPS) Superintendent Dr. Donna Hargens and McDonald’s® Restaurants of Kentuckiana announced a new partnership that will recognize and reward students and teachers at the district’s eight transformation schools.
This new program at transformation schools rewards students and teachers for being in class and prepared for learning. Each month (March, April and May), a student and teacher from each of the eight schools with perfect attendance will be randomly selected to win a gift package, valued at $20, courtesy of McDonald’s Restaurants of Kentuckiana. The 16 teachers and students chosen each month will also be recognized on JCPS social media as the McDonald’s Student and Teacher of the Month.
“I would like to thank the local McDonald’s owner/operators for stepping up to support JCPS as we work to finish out the school year strong,” Dr. Hargens said. “These attendance incentives will help reward staff and students who are focused on being present during the last three months of school to maximize student achievement.”
“At McDonald’s, we recognize the importance that education plays in strengthening our community,” said George Saliba, local McDonald’s owner/operator and president of the Kentuckiana Co-op. “We’d like to show our appreciation for local teachers and students who are making a difference through learning.”
