The I PROMISE School: A Lebron James Collaboration

-the school is a partnership between the Lebron James Family Foundation and Akron Public Schools

-this school year, the school will have 3rd and 4th graders.
(in 4th grade, Lebron missed 80+ days of school due to his mother's work instability)

-by 2022, the school wants to serve students from 1st grade to 8th grade

-the school day is from 9 am to 5 pm

-the school year is longer (July 30 - mid May)

-students are provided with two meals and a snack

-free uniforms, transportation, bikes, helmets, school supplies

-food pantry for parents to take food home

-students who complete the I PROMISE program will receive free tution at the University of Akron

-of course, racists/45 supporters are finding ways to be upset about this

As a teacher, one of my lifelong dreams is to open a school like this. I was fortunate enough to attend an elementary school that partnered with the community and state university system that greatly influenced who I am today.
