• Work Perks Guidelines and FAQs for Distribution of Information from Businesses

    The Cumberland County Schools (CCS) has more than 6,300 employees who work hard every day for students throughout the school system. Because what they do is valued, an effort is being made to seek out businesses and community members who share in this appreciation. The CCS’ Work Perks program offers businesses in the Community who share exclusive discounts and incentives to CCS’ Employees, FREE advertising on the CCS’ Intranet Portal and on Edmodo (the school system’s internal social media).

    Q. Who qualifies?
    A. Any organization, company representative, or an individual, who wishes to exclusively share discounts/incentives/coupons, etc., with CCS’ employees may qualify for this opportunity.

    Q. How can I share a discount with CCS employees?
    A. To share a discount exclusively with CCS’ employees, one must electronically submit the following information for approval to Communications & Community Engagement Web Manager Angel Hoggard at angelhoggard@ccs.k12.nc.us or by fax to 910-678-2606:

    Note: If during the year, your business holds a special event or promotion for educators, e.g., Teacher Appreciation Week, Administrative Professionals Week, Educational Bosses Week, etc., businesses are encouraged to make CAPR aware so that CCS’ employees can be informed of this opportunity.
