Two Lauderhill Elementary Schools Get Funding for Magnet Programs
The School Board of Broward County has received a $11.9 million federal grant to create and expand on magnet programs. Two of the programs under this grant will be at Royal Palm Elementary and Broward Estates Elementary.
Royal Palm Elementary will use these funds to create a new STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) program, and Broward Estates Elementary will add Engineering studies to its existing program.
Both of these schools feed into Lauderhill 6-12 Lab which is a STEM magnet which is a requirement to get the grant.
Since the schools are underenrolled, other students outside the boundary lines of these schools can apply in December. However, those within the boundary lines will automatically be eligible to attend.
