The SSEF has provided support to students and staff in the South Shore School District, most notably by providing a personal computer to every student, which is theirs to keep upon graduation. In addition, the Foundation has supported music, forensics, civics, math science, foreign language, athletics and other activities through a grant process that has proven to be very successful.
Foundation Board members met with every teacher to learn and understand needs in order to design ongoing initiatives that will continue to foster an environment of success for all students.
The Foundation leadership will continue to offer grant opportunities in support of excellence at the South Shore School.
