Cohasset Education Foundation funding of grants:

The CEF grants funds to support our teachers and schools by providing them with the incremental resources they need to enable innovation and ensure student success.  Our bylaws direct us to focus on grants such as one-time pilot projects, capital expenses, enhancements to curriculum development and teacher training for new and innovative programs.  All grant requests must be generated by teachers and/or administrators.

We are not directed to fund grants that could be considered ongoing operating expenses. Massachusetts state law and union regulations prohibit us from funding teacher salaries or bonuses.
