Transcript of Black Male Task Force - Everglades Zone Presentation (2/19/13 Coral Cove-Eligon)

Some Broward County schools have VPK programs. These programs are outsourced to private providers in schools for students who would be four years of age by September 1. Unfortunately, VPK is in a minority of elementary schools throughout all of Broward County. If every parent, regardless of socioeconomic status, race, cultural background, or location, had the ability to put children into public school pre-kindergarten, it would increase kindergarten readiness. Universal Broward County Public pre-k would increase student achievement among black males in kindergarten, which will lead to increased academic success and higher graduation rates. Why Early Childhood? According to district statistics, only 28 percent of black students are academically prepared when they begin kindergarten, compared to 35 percent of white students. The stats are downright damning, with 61 percent of black students graduating on time compared with 81 percent of whites.
A child's chances of graduating from high school often depends on how well he reads in the 1st grade. In order to close the gap, educators will need to intervene before students reach kindergarten.
The demographics of our zone are changing. Why Early Childhood? Effective strategies designed to help a sub-group can improve student achievement across the board when implemented with fidelity.
Although the Black Male Task Force has been created to put research based strategies, systems, and actions in place that will improve student achievement for African American Students, the secondary effect of the initiative will be to improve student achievement across the district.
Socioeconomics is at the forefront of the issue and is directly correlated to race. All Students Will Improve Florida Kindergarten Readiness Screener (FLKRS) Source: Fall 2011 FLKRS data file.

Currently, a preschool child qualifies for the Exceptional Student Education (ESE) program if they have a speech-language, sensory, physical, mental, or emotional condition which meets the criteria for enrollment established by the State Board of Education Rule. Students who are not ESE may have the opportunity to attend Voluntary Pre-Kindergarten (VPK) or Head Start. Head Start is a federally funded program that is currently in elementary schools for economically disadvantaged students who are three to four years of age. Unfortunately there are black males in every city in Broward County, including more affluent areas that may still fall below the poverty line. A majority of the schools that have a Head Start program are only in the neighborhoods that have been historically low-income. Why Early Childhood? HIGH QUALITY INSTRUCTION – FOCUS
