This week the CEF Board of Directors met with CUSD Superintendent Jane Yuster, Chief Academic Officer Sandra Jewett, and all of the school Principals. We looked at all of the submitted proposals for CEF Endowment allocations for Computer Science, Science, Literacy, and 21st Century Learning - every one focused on improving student success and increasing career and college readiness.
The principals spoke passionately about the need and merits of these critical proposals. We need your help to raise enough money to fund more of these programs.
Please help local students achieve their hopes and dreams by making a tax-deductible contribution to this great cause. Thanks to you, our loyal CEF annual endowment donors, we are investing heavily in critical thinking skills and academic outcomes for ALL students.
We need your help right now during our annual fundraising drive to help us fund some very powerful programs to provide high quality computer science, ensure consistent science education through teacher collaboration, improve reading and writing achievement, and much more. Please help at whatever level you can. All donations are currently being matched!! DONATE TO CEF's FALL FUNDRAISING CAMPAIGN!
