S. Fla. schools saved from closure

MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. (WSVN) -- A pair of South Florida high schools facing closure have been granted a second chance to improve their failing scores.

A Miami-Dade School Board member announced that Miami Carol City High and Miami Norland Senior High will not close because of their "F" status.

Instead, new programs will be implemented to motivate students to improve their performance.

Both schools have two years to improve their score to a "C" before they are re-evaluated.
