Chariho Community Educational Projects (CCEP) Mission
Most of us can remember a parent, teacher, class, or coach whose special efforts, guidance, and inspiration made "a difference " in our education and our lives. The CCEP mission is to offer Chariho Regional School District teachers, support personnel, administrators and student, community or parent groups additional funds to use as they endeavor to encourage a stimulating atmosphere of excellence in education and lifelong learning. CCEP funding is intended to supplement existing, budgeted funds. It provides "early support" from the private sector for ideas, opportunities and services that will substantially advance the educational process throughout the Chariho Regional School District.
