The new Melrose Education Foundation aims to raise $10,000 to $20,000 to provide grants for public school teachers. The foundation is planning to give out the first round of grants in the fall and a second round next spring, organizers said. Grants will be made for programs and projects that enrich curriculum but cannot be funded in the school budget. A seven-member board is overseeing the foundation, with Mayor Robert J. Dolan and School Superintendent Cyndy Taymore serving as ex officio members. The foundation can be reached at www.facebook.com/MelroseED. Online donations can be made through the group’s website, www.melroseedfoundation.org. “The funds from the Melrose Education Foundation will help our staff to explore new approaches to teaching and learning and to find new resources to support our students,” Taymore said in a prepared statement.
