Broward Virtual University
Broward Virtual University (BVU) offers Florida Department of Education approved add-on endorsement courses for Reading, Gifted and English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL). Broward County Public School and Board Approved Charter School teachers, in addition to teachers from all around Florida, can participate in these rigorous and enriching online learning experiences to earn add-on endorsement(s) on their teaching certificate as well as inservice points.
In the last few years, the costs for providing these endorsement courses have been fully supported by the Title II-Part A, Teacher and Principal Training and Recruiting Fund grant. The Title II-Part A grant allocations are from the Florida Department of Education as appropriated by US Department of Education. This funding source has sustained a declining fund balance and can no longer support this program. In order to continue offering these courses, beginning with the Fall 2017 semester, BVU course offerings will be assessed a $55 per course registration fee. In an effort to reduce any additional costs to participants, the content has been updated to eliminate the requirement of purchasing additional materials such as textbooks.
As part of our continued effort to better serve our district, a course registration fee will be charged for Broward Virtual University courses. Full payment will be required and collected upon registration through Learning Across Broward (LAB). Upon registration Participants may pay with a credit card only. Additional options are available through universities and professional learning providers at considerably higher fees.
