New Teacher Grants

Since 2005 the Foundation for Central Schools has provided new teacher grants. Grants are given to Teachers during their first year of teaching at Central Unified. Gradually, these grants have grown to $75 per teacher and are now redeemable at Office Depot. The 2021-2022 school year has welcomed 47 new teachers to the district so far.

Textbook Grants

We are  PROUD to launch our newest initiative thanks to our partnership with Engineered Industrial Products Inc. Starting Fall 2021, Juniors and Seniors enrolled in city college enrichment courses, who are attending a Central Unified High School, will have the opportunity to apply for a Textbook Grant. These grants will bridge the gap between funding and helping our students become workforce ready after graduation. 

Students who are interested in receiving financial assistance should contact their college and career counselor on-campus.
