Boston schools win Gates Foundation grant

$3m award aims to foster more collaboration

Boston will receive a $3.25 million grant from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation to foster collaboration among the city’s school system, charter schools, and parochial schools, the foundation plans to ­announce Wednesday.

Boston will be one of just seven US cities to receive a grant. The money will allow Boston to build upon a historic partnership launched last year to bolster the quality of education for all the city’s students, regardless of what kind of school they attend.
