Nine of Southern Florida’s lowest-achieving schools will see a school schedule makeover next year.

One high school and eight elementary schools in Broward County will lengthen the school day by 30 minutes to allow for “increased learning time” as required by a federal grant program, said district spokesperson Tracy Clark.

These schools received additional funding from the U.S. Department of Education’s three-year Schools Improvement Grants (“SIG”) program. We here at TSC are excited to see how these schools will use the additional 30 minutes and we will eagerly await the removal of their names from Florida’s lowest-achieving schools list!
