School Choice Application Window and Federal Student Aid
December 9, 2016
Broward County Public Schools is proud to offer high-quality educational programs at each of our schools, and works hard to meet the needs of all of our students. In December, families have the opportunity to explore some of their school choice options, should their student have an interest in a specialized academic program, not offered at their home school.
The Superintendent explains why this might be an option, for some families. The Superintendent also shares important information about the Federal Free Application for Federal Student Aid – also known as FAFSA, and how not completing this form could mean losing out on free money for college.

Letter to the BCPS Community Regarding This Weekend’s Tragic Event in Orlando
This weekend’s horrific act of violence in Orlando left me, like most of you, shaken to the core. As a result, I re-affirmed my commitment to drive out hate and bigotry through education, social consciousness, and the teaching of compassion and respect for others, regardless of one’s race, ethnicity, religion, gender, gender identity or sexual orientation.
As members of a learning organization, we each play an integral role in shaping the community consciousness, both present and future. We must not be passive bystanders of acts of hate, injustice and bias of any kind, but position ourselves as thought leaders in calling out and defining what is right.
