BCPS to Launch New Parent Portal for 2024/25 School Year – Learn More at Parent University: Get Focus(ed)! on April 8


Dear Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School Families,


Broward County Public Schools is streamlining the way parents access their students’ information by launching a new parent information portal for the 2024/25 school year.


I invite you to join District staff and the Parent and Community Involvement Task Force on April 8, at 6:30 p.m., for the new webinar Parent University: Get Focus(ed)!, where you will receive an overview of the new Focus student information system, which will replace Pinnacle and Virtual Counselor.


Focus centralizes all applications used by parents into one districtwide system., incorporating attendance, grade book, scheduling, report cards, transportation and communication.

Access the Parent University: Get Focus(ed)! webinar on April 8 through this link:

Participants will have the opportunity to submit questions through a chat feature at various points throughout the presentation. Closed captioning will be available in various languages.
