Four Broward Charter Schools Not Opening

FT. LAUDERDALE (CBSMiami) – Students at four Broward charter schools will not be going back to their schools when the new school year starts on Monday.

The Broward County School District said that's because they do not currently have contracts for Academic Solutions High School, Broward Math & Science Schools, Pivot Charter School and iGeneration Empowerment Academy of Broward County for the 2012-2013 school year.

The district said each school failed to submit documentation of certain provisions they had to meet before the July 20th deadline. The schools in question were given several reminders of the deadline and notified that "Failure to provide the required documents within the specific timeframe terminated the charter agreement."

Parents of students who planned to attend these schools can go to the districts website to see their options. The website has an online "back-to-school toolkit" that contains school locator and registration information. Or they can contact 754-321-4480 for assistance.
