We Care - Know The Rules

  • The School Board of Broward County, Florida (SBBC) consists of nine elected School Board Members who serve four-year terms.  Two of the School Board Members are elected “at large” by all of the electors in Broward County.  The other seven School Board Members are elected from seven school board member residence areas.   The School Board Members, along with the Superintendent, oversee the sixth-largest District in the nation. The SBBC implements policies that govern ethical, fiduciary, and scholastic mandates, protocols, and procedures for the District's schools, offices, and departments subject to any applicable federal, state, or local laws.  The SBBC answers to the residents and taxpayers of Broward County in an ethical, open, and transparent manner. 

    A school principal may supplement District policies by outlining rules specific to the school such as uniform colors, cell phone usage areas, and drop off/pick up times. However, school rules are limited in scope and do not supersede school district policies.

  • Anonymous Tip Line

    If you need to report something you can do so ANONYMOUSLY! No one will ever be able to know where the report originated. We need you to help keep our schools and our children safe, so if there is something going on that needs to be reported please report it.

    The text messaging service, TipSoft, allows a response by text message to the originating cell phone without ever knowing the identity of the individual who left the tip. The user’s information is always given an alias and a unique ID before being sent. This secure application allows the tipster and the investigator to have two-way dialog while always keeping the user’s identity completely anonymous.

    The School Board of Broward County encourages students to report information about any non-urgent illegal activity, such as vandalism, theft, the sale, and distribution of drugs or information about crimes that are being planned.

    Arrival

    Students must arrive at school on time every day. Students should be in class by 8:00 AM.

    Tardy

    Students arriving after 8:00 AM will be considered TARDY. If students arrive after 8:00 AM, the student will need to obtain a pass from the front office to be admitted to class.

    Dismissal

    The dismissal time is 2:00 PM. All students are expected to remain in school for the entire school day. No students will be dismissed 30 minutes prior to the last bell for safety reasons. 

  • Cell Phone

    Possession of a wireless communication device that disrupts the educational process is a violation. Cellular phones, camera phones, and pagers are prohibited at all times during class unless specifically instructed to do so as part of the lesson.

  • Code Red Drills

    Code Red Drills have been mandated for all schools by the State of Florida to ensure the safety of our students and staff. These Code Red Drills will be implemented on a monthly basis, similar to fire drills. The date of the drill will not be pre-announced due to potential security and attendance issues. Instead, our school will send families Parent Link messages via phone call, text message, and/or e-mail approximately 20 minutes prior to the drill to alert everyone that it is only a drill. Please do not contact your child during the Code Red Drills as it is important for all students to learn the safety procedures in case of an emergency. Our school will then send a second message to families notifying you that the drill is completed.
