Because demands on the educational system may exceed available public funding, the Cape Elizabeth School Board recognizes that members of the community are often willing to make voluntary contributions that will provide needed additional funds for the school district. The Board therefore approves and encourages the creation of and supports the work of the Cape Elizabeth Education Foundation, an independent educational foundation to actively raise funds that will enhance educational opportunities for our students.
The Board desires to work cooperatively with CEEF in determining the purposes for which funds may be used to meet the changing needs of the district and its students.
The Board supports foundation allocations that serve all district schools equitably.
