Broward County Public Schools Recognized for Multicultural Efforts
Broward County Public Schools Multicultural department has received the ASPIRA Leadership Through Education Award from ASPIRA of Florida, a community based organization with program operations in Palm Beach, Broward and Miami-Dade Counties.
The Multicultural department was honored by ASPIRA for its Multicultural Opportunities for Social, Academic and Intergenerational Competence (MOSAIC) project. Through the project, the department collaborates with the Broward County Library and other community organizations to provide after-school academic, literacy, life skills and technology outreach programs to refugee students and their families in grades K-12. Department staff also provides training to library staff and community partners on accessing online academic and student services resources through the District Web site and teaching academic content areas to refugee children and youth.
ASPIRA aims to develop better educated, more community conscious Latino and minority youth.
