The sixth largest public school system in the country and the second largest in Florida, Broward County Public Schools or BCPS serves 238 educational institutions along with 99 charter schools. Established in 1915, BCPS is Florida’s first fully accredited school system since 1962. It currently has over 260,000 students and 175,000 adult students. BCPS features one of the most diverse, multicultural student populations in the country, with more than 200 countries represented by its students.
Three-Year Strategic Plan
Led by a new superintendent and several new board members, BCPS started a three-year strategic plan in 2012 designed to help every student reach their highest potential. The plan’s objective is to focus on every level of education, from early childhood all the way through high school, to ensure that all students have the right knowledge and experience that will lead them to success after high school.
The plan focuses on three primary goals: high-quality instruction, continuous improvement, and effective communication. Through the plan, the district hopes to improve its four-year graduation rate by 90 percent and increase the number of college and career-ready graduates by 80 percent in 2015.
To further inspire its students, the school district will promote its achievements on TV, radio, print, and social media.
