Foundation will support schools and teachers, not replace budget shortfalls
January 11, 2011
NASHUA – Expanded preschool opportunities, training for educators, and grants for teachers to pay for innovative classroom projects are among the ways a newly formed foundation plans to enhance education in city schools.
Representatives from the Nashua Education Foundation presented their mission to members of the Board of Education on Monday night. Ronald Kraus, president of the nonprofit organization’s board of directors, stressed the foundation is meant to augment education and not replace budget shortfalls in the district.
“This is a community investment in Nashua students,” said Kraus, a small-business owner and adjunct professor at Rivier College. “I feel strongly that corporations and individuals will see this as a very viable and attractive way to leverage their funds for the enhancement of education in Nashua.”
