1 Education The Broward Public School system is the nation s sixthlargest public school system and the nation s largest fully accredited school system, with more than 262,000 K- 12 students representing 164 countries and speaking 52 different languages. The Broward County Public School system, with its $4.45 billion budget, is a vital part of the area s economy. With almost 40,000 employees, it is the county s largest employer. The school system also serves over 200,000 adult/ continuing education students. In 2000, the state of Florida implemented the Governor s A+ Plan for Education, the plan under which school performance is graded on a scale of A through F. Broward schools have consistently performed well and have been cited by the Council on Great City Schools for student achievement for the past six consecutive years. The district has earned either an A or B grade from the state each year since the grading process began. The School Board of Broward County is focused on student achievement and has adopted a comprehensive strategic plan defining its goals and objectives for the future. The plan was developed with key business and community leaders. It has adopted the Sterling Criteria for Organizational Performance Excellence, which is the Florida equivalent of the acclaimed Baldridge Criteria. It is an assessment vehicle for identifying strengths and opportunities for improvement. Independent and Private Schools Broward County has more than 60 private and independent schools that meet a variety of student academic and personal needs. Accredited non-public schools hold memberships in organizations such as the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS), the Florida Council of Independent Schools (FCIS), the Association of Independent Schools of Florida (AISF), the Florida Kindergarten Council (FKC), and several accrediting organizations for religious, proprietary, and special needs programs. The major accrediting organizations in Florida are approved by the Florida Association of Academic Nonpublic Schools (FAANS), which in turn is recognized by the Florida Department of Education. More than 30,000 children in Broward attend nonpublic schools, which offer programs from early childhood education through 12th grade. These schools welcome calls for information and are happy to arrange family visits to their campuses. Many also offer bus transportation. Career, Technical and Adult/Community Education Career, Technical and Adult/Community Education (CTACE) programs and services are an integral part of Broward County Public Schools. Preparing students for today s highly technical careers is the cornerstone on which the district s workforce development programs are built. The goal is for students to acquire the skills they need for high-skill/ high-wage jobs. The school district offers programs that start with career awareness and exploration in middle school and progress through specialized high school and postsecondary technical education training programs. Each year, the district provides adult and community education programs and services to thousands of economically and ethnically diverse adults and young people. Among the programs available are Adult Basic Education (ABE), Adult Secondary Education, General Educational Development (GED), English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL), Family/Intergenerational Literacy, Vocational Preparatory Instruction and programs for Adults with Disabilities. Community Education offerings include academic, recreational, health, cultural, artistic, social science and parenting preparation programs. With classes as diverse as floral arranging, Spanish, tennis, yoga, sculpture or an introduction to computers, thousands of Broward residents enjoy applying their talents and learning new skills. Business Specific As businesses identify their workforce requirements, Broward Technical Centers (Atlantic, McFatter and Sheridan), Broward Community College and the area s fouryear universities implement state-of-theindustry programs to meet industry demand. Students may earn credits through a seamless workforce education system. Workforce education programs have been designed to address the needs of the following business sectors: Agriscience, Automotive Technology, Business and Information Technology, Communications, Construction and Manufacturing, Early Childhood Education, Health Sciences, Hospitality, and Tourism and Technology. Broward Technical Centers boast state-

2 Broward Community College Library Kaplan University of-the-art equipment and facilities, informed and skilled faculty, and industry validated educational programs. Broward Technical Centers are expanding e-learning opportunities in a variety of workforce development programs in order to better serve the needs of students who need flexible scheduling options in order to improve or upgrade their skills. In addition, the Broward Technical Centers provide business-training solutions at school, at business sites and online to address specific training needs and schedules. The district s industry partners have honored many Career and Technical Education programs with national awards of excellence. School to Career School to Career (STC) is a system designed to prepare students for greater success in careers and higher education. It offers educational opportunities that promote high academic standards and the attainment of transferable skills. STC facilitates academic learning and performance for all students. Graduates are academically and technologically prepared to enter college and join the workforce. In Broward County Public Schools, STC begins at the elementary school level and culminates at the high school level. It is implemented through a myriad of school-based, work-based and connecting activities and programs delivered by schools, employers, and communities. School-based activities provide career and educational exploration opportunities for students that will help them see how academic skills relate to the real world and to higher education. STC curricula materials have been developed for elementary, middle and high school classes. Work-based activities include on-thejob training, job shadowing, internships, informational interviews and service learning projects. Connecting activities include college and career fairs, career and academic assessments, career exploration field trips, employer mentors in the classrooms, and educators in the workplace. The School to Career Department is committed to providing resources and support to students, parents, teachers, administrators and other stakeholders to ensure that all students receive a quality education. Seamless Education Economic forecasts indicate that 80 percent of future occupations will require technical education beyond high school. The School Board of Broward County has approved agreements with local colleges to provide a seamless educational system whereby students may earn credits toward degrees through completion of Career and Technical Education programs.

3 the Place to Learn Broward County Public Schools The Broward school district s total budget for 2006/07 was $4.45 billion, including general fund, special revenue, debt service, internal services and capital projects. Total instructional staff: approximately 25,000. For the 2006/07 school year, the starting salary for a newly hired teacher was $37,000 to $67,488, depending on experience. Broward County Public Schools teachers average more than 15 years of experience and more than 42 percent have advanced degrees (i.e. masters, Ph.D.). The district employs more than 1,000 National Board Certified Teachers, the largest total in the state of Florida and second-highest total in the nation. More than 1,500 buses transport more than 85,000 students to and from school each day. The district has more than 45,000 community volunteers and 2,500 business partnerships. James F. Notter was named superintendent of Broward County Public Schools in August 2007 after serving as interim superintendent since November Broward County Public Schools received a B district grade in 2006/07. Overall, 121 schools earned A grades and 37 achieved B marks. The 2006/07 year marked the third time in the last four years that more than 50 percent of district schools received A grades. Broward is one of only 25 school districts in the state to receive only A or B grades (including at least one A ) since the state s grading process began. Seventy-five Broward schools earned the Florida Department of Education s most prestigious award for community involvement in 2005/06, the Five Star School Award. The award is presented to those schools that demonstrate exemplary family and community involvement. The Broward County Public School District was one of six districts and schools to receive the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency s Indoor Air Quality Tools for Schools 2006 Excellence Award. The award is the EPA s most prestigious honor, recognizing exemplary air quality programs and a commitment to providing a healthy learning environment for students and staff. The district offers a full range of magnet school programs, from arts and drama to science and technology, to meet the specialized needs and talents of students. The district has 63 different magnet programs in 47 schools (18 elementary schools, 15 middle schools and 14 high schools). The Broward Education Community Network (BECON) received a 2006 Emmy Award from the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences for Broward School Beat, a 30-minute monthly news magazine that highlights the positive stories happening in the District. BECON also received a 2005 Emmy Award for its production of Science and Me, an educational program for kindergarten through second grade students. The Council of the Great City Schools has recognized Broward County Public Schools for its academic accomplishments for the past six consecutive years.

4 This seamless education system allows students, beginning in ninth grade, to meet graduation requirements, college and university entrance requirements and technical certification requirements. Utilizing strategies such as Tech-Prep, Magnet Programs, the College Academy, and Small Learning Communities, students receive a rigorous and relevant curriculum and maximum opportunities to meet individual goals.
