Spotlight on Education

Afterschool Supper Program

Broward County Public Schools (BCPS) has expanded its Afterschool Supper Program to include four additional school sites, for a total of 110 schools serving nutritious meals to students. The supper meals ensure that more than 14,000 students participating in regularly scheduled afterschool educational or enrichment activity programs receive the nutrition they need to learn and grow. The suppers are funded through the Child Care Food Program, a federally funded program, which provides healthy meals in the child care setting. Meals meet all USDA requirements and include a milk, fruit, vegetable, grain and meat (or meat alternate), and are offered in the school’s cafeteria. The healthy meals are available to children participating in afterschool programs at no separate charge regardless of race, color, national origin, sex, age or disability. For more information on the Afterschool Supper Program, please call Melissa Moore, BCPS Food and Nutrition Services at 754.321.0215.

Excellence in Education Teacher Grant Fund


The Broward Education Foundation administers the City's Excellence in Education Teacher Grant Funding Program. The goal of the program is to reward Hollywood teachers and school-based administrators by funding their original and innovative projects. Projects selected for funding enrich the standard curriculum and explore new alternatives to traditional methods of learning. Projects address needs for which funding is not available through state, federal or district revenues. For additional information about the program please contact Broward Education Foundation at 754.321.2030.

The Education Advisory Committee has a sub-committee that promotes the program and helps to evaluate grant applications in partnership with the Broward Education Foundation. For more information on the program, please call the City Manager's Office at 954.921.3321.
