You are your child’s first and most important teacher and your involvement is crucial to his/her success.
Broward County has The Parent Involvement Office which is available with information and resources to help you stay informed and get involved in your child's education.
Broward High School Council
The Broward High School Council is an open forum for parents and other stakeholders to come together to: learn about high schools today, discuss issues, look for solutions, and to support the continuous learning of all students. All interested individuals, including high school representatives to the District Advisory Council, are encouraged to be involved with the HS Council.
The District Advisory Council (DAC) fosters and promotes communication among School Advisory Forums, School Advisory Councils, Area Advisory Councils, the District Advisory Council, the Superintendent of Broward County Schools, and the Broward County School Board. The DAC acts as a forum for Area Advisory Councils and others to propose recommendations and discuss issues that are relevant to the District. The DAC provides information to the School Board and the Superintendent based on this intercommunication. Learn more about the District Screening Committee.
Pinnacle Internet Viewer
The viewer allows parents and students to access real-time grades and attendance via the internet. This is a wonderful too to stay up-to-date on how your child is progressing in his / her classes. The viewer allows you to receive email alerts when your child’s grade drops below a specified average or when your child is absent from a class.
You will need your child’s Student Identification Number and a Date of Birth to access your child’s information. The Student Identification number is a specific county issue number that appears on your child’s schedule, interim report and report card. If you do not have access to these sources any of your child’s teachers can give him / her this number.
Students will use their Active Directory (AD) account username and password to access the system. As they have in years past, parents will have to use the credentials of their child in order to access Pinnacle.
Username: (student 10-digit number)@my.browardschools.com
(Capital P+2 digits for month/2 digits for the day/4 digits for the year)
Don’t forget to include the / (slash)
If you called in to excuse an absence, this may not show up on the Pinnacle Viewer for up to 3 days beyond the absence. Please be patient and check back before becoming alarmed.
Some "School Attendance" codes are considered as "ABSENT" - FT (Field Trip), and SO (Signed Out) . Please do not be alarmed by these codes - the Pinnacle System is just reporting all attendance codes as absences. Rest assured that the student is not actually "Absent" unless you see the Unexcused (AU) or Excused (A) Absence Code next to the date and period of day.
