Broward County School District announces efforts to assist Haiti

Broward County Public Schools Superintendent of Schools James F. Notter announced District plans to assist Haiti following the devastating earthquake that struck the island nation on Tuesday.

“Another natural disaster has hit close to home for many of Broward County Public Schools students and staff, said Superintendent Notter. “We want to extend our thoughts and condolences to the citizens of Haiti, who this week suffered an earthquake of unprecedented proportion.”

“We have a very large Haitian student population in our schools, as well as teachers and staff, and extend our heartfelt compassion and concern to all who have and may be impacted by the earthquake disaster. As a District family, we are all touched and affected,” he said.

Spearheaded by School Board member Phyllis C. Hope, District 6, the School Board is allowing for fundraising and other charitable activities such as the collection of supplies to support the immediate relief efforts to the disaster-ravished areas in Haiti.  All District high schools, area offices, and the Kathleen C. Wright Building in downtown Fort Lauderdale, will serve as main collection sites.  Items collected will be sent to District designated charitable agencies, which are active in Haiti.

In recognition of the many family relationships, which exist between students, staff and community members and those affected in Haiti, the District is providing grief and crisis counseling and support during this stressful period. We are working with humanitarian organizations including the Red Cross and local Haitian organizations, as well as the Haitian consulate to identify and provide for the most pressing needs of the Haitian people.

The community is encouraged to participate and support the District-wide relief effort.
