Nine public elementary schools and three charter schools in Broward County will have to give students an extra hour of class time this year because they didn’t make sufficient reading gains on the state’s standardized test.
That’s expected to cost $288,000 in additional bus services that will be paid with state-allocated funds. Additional programming costs will also be covered by state money.
Every year the state releases a list of its lowest 100 performing elementary schools based on how students do on the reading portion of the FCAT.
Three public schools and one charter – Dillard Elementary in Fort Lauderdale, Park Ridge Elementary in Deerfield Beach, Plantation Elementary and Imagine Charter at North Lauderdale – are no longer on the list and will have less instruction time.
Here is the list of new start and end times for all affected public schools. The schools in bold will have additional class time.
