2017/18 Superintendent’s Final School Boundary Recommendations & Upcoming Public Hearings

Tuesday, February 14, 2017
 
Recently, Broward County Public Schools (BCPS) Superintendent Robert W. Runcie presented the 2017/18 Final School Boundary Recommendations, which are now available on the District’s website (http://bit.ly/2kchLiJ). The recommendations are based on community input, School Board input, staff review of boundary considerations, and a review of additional information following the January 24, 2017, School Board workshop. 

Highlights from the Superintendent’s Final School Boundary Recommendations include:
  • Creating a sixth through 12th grade experimental academic pathway at Millennium Middle School, adding one high school grade with 75 seats each year until 2020/21 when all high school grade levels will be on campus.
  • A boundary change from Heron Heights Elementary School and Park Trails Elementary School to Riverglades Elementary School to align enrollment growth with new school capacity.
  • A phase-in boundary change from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School to Coral Glades High School to relieve over-crowding, for the area bounded by Sample Road on the north, University Drive on the east, Royal Palm Boulevard on the south, and Coral Springs Drive on the west.
Public hearings regarding the 2017/18 school attendance areas and school usage recommendations for all elementary, middle, high and combination schools are scheduled for Wednesday, March 1, 2017, and Wednesday, March 22, 2017. Both public hearings take place at 5:30 p.m., at Plantation High School, 6901 NW 16th Street, Plantation, FL  33313.
