Student Success Opportunity Schools


Student Success Opportunity Schools (SSOS) is a strategic initiative by Broward County Public Schools (BCPS) to review the performance of schools utilizing a variety of criteria, such as student academic performance, school enrollment, climate, facilities and other local factors. SSOS provides an opportunity for the District to work with parents, students, staff and community members to discuss the potential educational options available for students that are sustainable and promote increased student achievement.

As the state continues to wrestle with the implementation of the Florida Standards and the Florida State Assessment (and how school grades are computed), BCPS continues to work with communities in an inclusive way to generate positive changes in schools that reflect community wishes, as well as school and District needs. The District, as well as the communities, work together to review school grade level configurations, potential magnet programs and more effective and efficient education services and programs.

Next SSOS Symposium Meeting Date: Monday, November 16th at 6:30 pm in the Boyd Anderson High School Auditorium - 3050 NW 41 Street, Lauderdale Lakes, FL 33309
 


On Monday, October 19th at 6:30 pm at Hallandale High School (Directions to Hallandale) , Broward County School District staff held a community meeting on school boundary proposals that may affect southeast Broward beginning in the upcoming 2016-17 school year. Presentations included a staff proposal to create a new kindergarten through eighth grade school on the campuses of the current Hallandale Elementary School and Hallandale Adult & Community Center. In this proposal, Gulfstream Middle School students will move to the new K-8 and the current Hallandale Adult & Community Center students will be relocated to the current H.D. Perry Middle School site, which will become the new Adult Center.

In conjunction with these moves, there are two proposals to relocate the current H. D. Perry Middle School students to either New Renaissance Middle School and McNicol Middle School or all to New Renaissance Middle School, and a small boundary change from Gulfstream Middle School to Olsen Middle School to align the new feeder patterns. Additional presentations included a community proposal to combine the attendance areas of Hollywood Hills Elementary School and Sheridan Hills Elementary School as a kindergarten through eighth grade school on two campuses, with grades kindergarten through two assigned to the Sheridan Hills campus and grades three through five assigned to the Hollywood Hills campus. Grades six through eight remain assigned to Attucks Middle School or Olsen Middle School, but may apply to attend sixth through eighth grade at the Hollywood Hills campus, space permitting. Also included are small boundary changes which move a portion of the Sheridan Hills Elementary School boundary to Sheridan Park Elementary School and a portion of the Hollywood Hills Elementary School boundary to Mary M. Bethune Elementary School.

The meeting consisted of a presentation of the proposals and breakout sessions where District staff were on hand to answer specific questions regarding the proposals. All staff and community boundary proposals for the 2016-17 school year can be found on the Demographics & Student Assignments web site.
