Broward County Public Schools (BCPS) in the US has received an award from Cambridge International in recognition of its students’ consistently high performance.
Cambridge’s Regional Director for North America, Mark Cavone, and Deputy Regional Director, Sherry Reach, presented the District of the Year Award for 2017 to the BCPS Board on 18 September. BCPS is the first district to win the ‘large district’ category of the Award.
'We congratulate the students, teachers, and administrators in Broward County on their exceptional level of achievement,' said Mark Cavone. 'At Cambridge International, we pride ourselves on working with schools and educators to build programmes that emphasize critical thinking skills, independent learning, research, and communications so students are ready for future challenges. Broward County has implemented Cambridge programmes with great fidelity and seen tremendous results.'
BCPS Superintendent Robert W. Runcie said the district was honoured to receive the award. He commented: 'Congratulations to our teachers, students and staff for your success with this academically rigorous curriculum, as we remain focused on ensuring our students are college and career ready.'
BCPS is the sixth-largest school district in the US and the second-largest in Florida. It is responsible for 234 schools and over 270,000 students.
