LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – For the fifth time this school year, report cards for students enrolled in Jefferson County Public Schools have been sent home to parents for review.
"We hope that they're seeing improvement. And if they are not seeing improvement, we want them to have a conversation with their students and teachers," said Ben Jackey, JCPS communication specialist.
However, Jackey said that conversation cannot be had, if report cards do not make it home in the hands of students. To ensure progress reports are reviewed, JCPS district parents can access students' grades online.
"They can go to our web site and click on the parent section and find access to parent portal," said Jackey.
Through the parent portal, guardians can also access information about their child's attendance and class schedule, as well as view notes from instructors.
"If they are seeing progression and they are pleased with what they're seeing, we hope they'll celebrate that," said Jackey.
More than a half dozen businesses throughout Louisville are allowing students to redeem good grades for free rewards. "For every ‘A that the student gets - up to six A's - they can get a free doughnut," said Ron Hall of Krispy Kreme.
Hall is the general manager of the store at 3000 Bardstown Road where good grades are rewarded year-round.
"We get an influx right when the report cards come out for the first couple weeks, and then it kind of dies down, but we'll still see report cards well into the summer," said Hall
At least seven different businesses reward good grades with free prizes in Louisville:
