Jefferson County Public Schools (JCPS) and McDonald’s® Restaurants of Kentuckiana announced the continuation of a partnership that will recognize teachers at the district’s eight transformation schools.
The program at transformation schools rewards teachers for being in class and ready to increase student achievement. Each month (August-May), a teacher with perfect attendance from each of the eight schools will be randomly drawn to win a gift package, valued at $20, courtesy of McDonald’s Restaurants of Kentuckiana. The eight teachers chosen each month will also be recognized on the district’s social media as the McDonald’s Teacher of the Month.
“These attendance incentives help recognize and reward our staff who are focused on being in the classroom ready to teach some of our most vulnerable students,” JCPS Acting Superintendent Dr. Marty Pollio said. “We have the best teachers in the country right here in JCPS. I appreciate the local McDonald’s owner/operators for helping recognize their hard work and dedication to the district and its students.”
“At McDonald’s, we recognize the importance that educators play in strengthening our community,” said George Saliba, local McDonald’s owner/operator and president of the Kentuckiana Co-op. “We appreciate everything they do and are proud to show our appreciation for local teachers who are making a difference through learning.”\
