Learn About What’s New in Schools During the New Parent University

October 10 – Elementary Grades, October 17 – Secondary Grades

Now that the 2022/23 school year is underway, Broward County Public Schools staff and the Parent and Community Involvement Task Force are presenting a new Parent University – What’s New in Schools.

This installment of the webinar series will provide information on some of the changes parents and students will experience this school year. Topics include educational changes at the state level – such as the new academic standards, instructional materials and the student assessment program that replaces the FSA – as well as information on innovative program opportunities, 21st century skills that help with academics, applying for free or reduced-price meals, how to track your student’s school bus and much more.

Parent University: What’s New in Schools will be offered in two sessions, which can be accessed through the links below:

Monday, October 10, at 6:30-8 p.m. for elementary grades (K - 5)

Monday, October 17, 6:30-8 p.m. for secondary grades (6 - 12)

Participants will have the opportunity to ask questions at various points throughout the presentation and closed captioning will be available in Spanish, Portuguese, Haitian-Creole, Arabic, Chinese and Vietnamese.
