Some Broward Schools Adding Extra Hour To School Day

 
Some Broward Schools Adding Extra Hour To School Day
Posted Thursday, July 24th 2014 @ 1pm

The school day will stretch an hour longer for students at 32 Broward County public schools.

That's because they made the state list of 300 elementary schools with the worst reading scores.

State law requires that the lowest-performing schools add an hour of reading instruction. It's unclear if that hour will be tacked on to the beginning of the day or the end.

A state report shows more than 70 percent of the schools that stayed open an extra hour last year saw more students pass the reading portion of the FCAT exam.

The following Broward schools will tack on another hour to the school day:

North Side Elementary (Fort Lauderdale)
