A teachers in jail fundraiser is a quick and easy way to raise a lot of money. Plus, students get a little break from classes, and teachers can catch up on grading and planning.
The premise is simple: classes pay a certain amount to have their teacher thrown in “jail” for that class period. The students get to hang out in the gym or on the playground or in another communal area.
The teacher obviously doesn’t really go to jail. He or she simply stays in the classroom and works on planning, grading, or other tasks. Even if you just have a few class periods in the day, your school stands to raise hundreds or even thousands of dollars!
