We're looking forward to sharing the successes this year from all of the schools that serve Tamarac students.

The Back to School Splash is scheduled for Saturday, August 17, from noon – 3 pm at the Caporella Aquatic Complex, 9300 NW 58 th St.

VPK at Tamarac Elementary
Tamarac Elementary welcomed 20 4-year-old students to its first voluntary prekindergarten (VPK) program. This free, income-based program selected students on a first-come, first-served basis and will run from 8:35 am – 3 pm for the entire school year.

The VPK program is the result of a partnership between the City of Tamarac and Broward County Public Schools and was met with great enthusiasm from the community.
Excellence in Performance Management
Tamarac has been recognized by the International City/County Management Association (ICMA) for our data-driven management and reporting efforts with a Certificate of Excellence in Performance Management.

This is the sixth year in row the City has earned this prestigious award.

A Packed House

More than 30 vendors, including the Children's Services Council, KidCare, the Florida Department of Health, Family Central and the Broward Library, as well as BSO and Tamarac Fire Rescue handed out valuable resources for the start of the new school year.
