Four local companies have teamed up to prepare students for the proficiency tests by forming “Partnership for Proficiency.” It is a program that gives kids the incentive to study and have a positive attitude about the standardized tests. Domino’s, Coca-Cola, Whiz, and The Times Recorder have all pitched in to support local school districts and the focus on students passing the tests. Maysville School District and Zanesville City Schools are taking part in the event. Each child will sign a contract with the companies pledging to do their part, while in return the companies have agreed to highlight a student of the month who will be put in the paper and on TV and radio. All students who keep their contracts will receive a Domino’s pizza party with Coca-Cola participating at their school.
