On Saturday, December 3, 2011, Alberto M. Carvalho, Superintendent of Miami-Dade County Public Schools (M-DCPS), will visit Aventura Turnberry Jewish Center. In September 2008, Mr. Carvalho assumed his current post leading the nation’s fourth largest school system which serves a diverse student body of over 400,000 in PreK-Adult classes.

By bringing a renewed focus to the classroom, student performance has improved significantly. In 2010, the District posted its highest high school graduation rate ever and through a data-driven approach to school performance improvement, decreased the number of “F” high schools in Miami-Dade from 13 to one. In addition, a majority of schools earned a grade designation of “A.” He has been featured on CNN, NBC, The New York Times, District Administration Magazine, The Christian Science Monitor, and Nightly Business Report.

Lectures will take place during Shabbat morning services held between 9:00am – 12:00pm. Light refreshments will be provided following services. Complimentary babysitting available. Community members may contact Aventura Turnberry Jewish Center at 305-937-1880,, or visit for more information.
