The Foundation continued its investments in key areas of The Cleveland Plan, whose goals are to ensure that every child in Cleveland attends a high-quality school—district or charter—and that every neighborhood has great schools from which families can choose. Grants included start-up support for five new high schools—John Marshall School of Engineering, John Marshall School of Information Technology, John Marshall School of Civic and Business Leadership, Cleveland School of the Arts and Max S. Hayes High School, all in the Cleveland Metropolitan School District, and Stonebrook Montessori, a new charter school in Glenville. The Foundation also continued its support for the Cleveland Transformation Alliance, charged with overseeing implementation of the Cleveland Plan, and made grants to Breakthrough Charter Schools, PRE4CLE and Teach For America. Total education grantmaking was $3,749,500.
