Recipe for Success with Guest Supt. Robert Runcie, Broward County Public Schools

Play
Read more

Just as there are no two recipes that contain the exact same ingredients or measurements, there are no two success stories exactly the same. Recipe For Success features entrepreneurs, visionary leaders and innovators of all ages who will share their ingredients that make them successful – personally and professionally.


Let's get cooking!  As superintendent of the nation’s sixth largest school district – with over 270,000 students in 337 schools and approximately 30,000 employees – Broward County Public Schools Superintendent Robert W. Runcie is committed to Educating Today’s Students to Succeed in Tomorrow’s World.


Runcie knows first-hand how a high-quality education can transform a person’s life. Born in Jamaica, he moved to the United States as a young boy and became the first member of his family to attend college, graduating from Harvard University and earning an MBA from Northwestern University. He later founded a management and technology consulting company and held several strategic leadership positions with Chicago Public Schools, including serving as its Chief Information Officer, Chief Administrative Officer, Chief Area Instructional Officer and Chief of Staff to the Board of Education.


Runcie joined Broward County Public Schools in 2011. With the support of a dynamic School Board, Runcie developed a strategic plan for the District focusing on three key areas: high-quality instruction, continuous improvement and more effective communications.


As part of these strategic goals, Runcie spearheaded technology innovations in the classroom. Among the initiatives is the Digital 5: Pathways to Personalized Learning project, which provides a blended, personalized learning environment for students and teachers from 100 elementary schools with laptops, digital resources, online instructional materials, and other learning tools to maximize student learning.


In addition, under his leadership, BCPS became the only Florida school district selected for a unique partnership with the national non-profit organization Code.org, to increase students’ opportunities to learn computer science in schools.

Ep. 37 - Virtual Learning Strategies During Crisis with Robert Runcie Superintendent of Broward County Public Schools

Play
Read more

Robert Runcie, superintendent of Broward County Public Schools visits with us during this time of the astonishing and rapid breakdown (albeit temporarily) of society and the economy in the United States--in large part due to public schools being ordered to shut down across America. Parents are unable to work, families and children are unable to get food and computers that are needed for teachers to even attempt to migrate to online teaching are not available or dispersed equally to all families. And to make matters worse, teachers are not trained to be teaching online and many communities in the United States don't even have broadband or secure wifi access.

Incredible, right?

This global crisis caused by the virus that is killing people, has also killed public education in America as we have come to know it. 

Robert Runcie is at the forefront of change in education technology. Originally from the private sector technology industry, by way of Union-heavy Chicago, he knows first hand how almost impossible it is to innovate in and transform public educational processes and systems. But the biggest threat we are all facing is the too-slow transformation of our mindsets around not only on our awareness of the vitalness of quality public education for all, but also how we as social beings must evolve using technology in order to survive.

In this conversation with the Washington Post’s Jonathan Capehart, Runcie talks about the power of hope and how some of the radical academic changes he brought to the District, the sixth largest in America, may have helped the school’s students become powerful leaders in the gun control movement.
