Broward County Public Schools offers area businesses recognition opportunities for their help in underwriting District employee recognition events and community involvement programs, sports schedules and student publications.
Broward County’s Teacher of the Year Recognition Program was the first event program that received community support. Today all of the school board’s employee and community involvement programs are successful because of sponsorship support. Proceeds from each program are used to secure student or classroom resources.
So whether you want to help support an employee recognition program, a student based reading program, parent/volunteer training or you just want to promote your product or business to area residents, we have the sponsorship opportunity for you.
