WE DID IT!
Thanks to the dedicated efforts of many Victoria Park volunteers, the Broward County School Board adjusted the boundaries for Harbordale Elementary in April 2015 -- to be phased in over the next five years. We have gained access to a great school for Victoria Park kindergartners for the 2015-2016 school year. Each year following, Victoria Park children in the next grade level will be assigned to Harbordale as their regular school.
