Broward County Public Schools was recently named one of 5 schools to receive a $750,000 grant from the U.S. Department of Education. The dollars will allow BCPS to attract and retain more high school teachers in career and technical education.
This aligns with Superintendent Runcie’s BESTT (Broward Education Superior Technology Teachers) program, intended to grow high quality teachers in computer science and information technology throughout the district.
“To ensure that our students are equipped with the skills and knowledge for future success, we must provide all students access to highly effective educators, including in our career and technical education classrooms,” said BCPS Superintendent Robert W. Runcie. “This grant will help us provide more students with access to high-quality teachers in fields that are aligned with local workforce needs.”
