Council of Intown Neighborhoods and Schools (CINS)
CINS represents a cluster of eleven schools in Atlanta intown neighborhoods, including seven elementary schools, three middle schools, and Grady High School. CINS was founded in 1978.
Each year, CINS grants thousands of dollars to teachers in these schools for creative classroom projects, teacher enrichment, gueset speakers, performers, and field trips. CINS grans are intended to supplement, and not replace APS funding. The CINS mission is to influence Atlanta Board of Education policy to ensure ongoing progress for all children in the Grady cluster of schools.
To meet this goal, CINS conducts monthly meetings of parents, school administrators, and Board of Education members to expore resources, identify critical issues, and seek solutions to problems.
