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.

  • 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.

  • Parents & Visitors

    All visitors including parents must check into the attendance office prior to going to any classrooms or any area on campus. An official photo identification (ID) is required. Acceptable forms of ID include the following:

    • Driver’s license

    • Passport

  • Dress Code

    The dress code rules enforced at our school align directly with the District's Unified School Dress - Policy 5309. Review the District policies outlined on this page for more information.

    Benefits of a Uniform Policy

    Research suggests that school uniforms

    • Improve discipline, self-esteem, and self-respect.
    • The student focuses on learning.
    • Eliminate the fear of whether their clothing choice will be acceptable by peers.
    • Strengthens school pride.
    • Identify the student population from strangers on school grounds.
    • Cost-effective.

    All children should start wearing their school uniform on the very first day of school this August.  Please call us at school if you have any questions or concerns.

    A parent or guardian may request by mail, or in person, an application for an exemption from the uniform program.  Exemption waivers must be completed by the 10th day of the student's enrollment.

  • Retention and Promotion

      • Elementary School K-5

        Promotion Criteria

        The School Board of Broward County is dedicated to meeting the educational needs of all students in a safe learning environment. Decisions regarding promotion and retention are based on state law and criteria defined in School Board Policy 6000.1 and apply to all kindergarten students; all first and second-grade students who take the Stanford Achievement Test (SAT); and all students who take the FSA. This includes students with disabilities and limited English proficient (LEP) students.  

      • Good Cause Criteria

        Students will be given multiple opportunities to show that they have learned what they need to know in order to be promoted. These opportunities will include different assessments presented in various ways.  If a student does not meet the promotion criteria on any of these assessments, there are some additional options called “good cause” for a student to be promoted. In some instances, students who have been previously retained, students who are disabled, and students who have limited English proficiency may be promoted if they meet certain requirements.
