African American Applicant Incentive

McCracken County Community Career Endowment Offers Incentive to African American Certified Applicant

Thank you for your consideration of employment with the McCracken County School District as a certified teacher, counselor or administrator.

The McCracken County Community Career Endowment, Inc. (MCCCE) welcomes you and encourages you to seriously consider acceptance of employment in our community. In addition, MCCCE would like to offer you an incentive of $1,000.00 payable upon verification of your employment as a certified teacher, counselor or administrator for the NcCracken County School District.

****To be eligible to receive this bonus, you cannot have been employed as a certified teacher in either the Paducah Independent or McCracken County School Systems within the past 24 months.

****Certification must be from the Commonwealth of Kentucky Education Professional Standards Board.

****Only one bonus per employee.

MCCCE is a non-profit organization that was created in 2007 to address the educational, employment and social needs of the African American community of Paducah/McCracken County Kentucky. To date, we have assisted numerous students to attend college through our scholarships and ACT Prep programs, financially supported several community-based mentoring-tutoring organizations, promoted employment opportunities and advocated for equal opportunities.

The McCracken County School District currently has a low African American student population. We feel it is of importance that the diverse teacher population reflects the student population to improve student achievement, to develop positive role models and to enhance student-teacher relationships. Paducah also has a strong network of retired African American educators that are willing to help new teachers acclimate to our community.

You are encouraged to visit our website at and/or contact our office at 270-444-6962 or 270-519-9101.

McCracken County Schools is an Equal Opportunity Employer and offers employment without regard to race, color, national origin, religion, sex, creed, age or disability.
