School Board approves shiftfrom centers to colleges
Atlantic, McFatter and Sheridan Technical Centers are now Technical Colleges
On June 24, 2014, the School Board of Broward County, Florida, unanimously approved a recommendation to change the names of Atlantic, McFatter and Sheridan Technical Centers to Atlantic, Mc-Fatter and Sheridan Technical Colleges.
Broward County Public Schools has long been a leader of Career, Technical and Adult Education in Florida. The decision to change the names to include the college distinction further strengthens and enhances the educational opportunities for adult students and business partners throughout Broward County. It also supports the District’s mission to increase awareness in the com-munity about the many high-quality educational options available for adult learners who are seeking career and technical education programs.
“We are excited by the many new possibilities that come with this name change,” said Superintendent Robert W. Runcie. “We are focusing on providing all students with world-class career programs – from our youngest learners through our adult learners. Our technical colleges will continue to ensure students are prepared for success.”
