Boston Schools Fund
WHAT THEY DO:
The make great Boston schools bigger, and work with public, charter and parochial schools to optimize the best schools and get every student in Boston into a seat in a high-performing school.
WHY THEY DO IT:
Not all students in Boston attend a top performing school. Many students in Boston still go to schools that underperform against state and national metrics. BSF wants to change that and raise the bar for all students by creating enough seats for all kids in great Boston schools.
WHY WE'RE INVOLVED:
The team is thoughtful and stellar, and it’s a unique approach. They want to optimize high performing assets and, by default, decrease the need for the underperforming schools. They do this by giving grants, rolling up their sleeves and working with school administrations, connecting school leaders with great consultants and leveraging their political relationships to help great schools grow their space allocation, staffing and funding.
