Broward school board approves plan to close five schools by 2025-2026 – NBC 6 South Florida

The Broward County School Board provided more clarity on the school’s repurposing program on Tuesday.

The board voted on a timeline of events in the controversial plan to address declining enrollment.

They approved the superintendent’s plan to close at least five schools by the 2025-2026 school year while adding academic programs across the district to make schools more attractive to parents and students. Expect more magnet, elective, Cambridge and vocational training programs.

The board did not identify any specific schools that should be closed. Those decisions have not yet been made.

The proposal is part of the district’s plan to repurpose under-enrolled schools by changing their grade levels, combining them with another school or closing them.
