Parent engagement and communication is key, particularly during the critical Back to School timeframe.
To help your staff inform parents/guardians of important and timely technology initiatives and processes, the information & Technology Department is providing links to documents that can be reproduced and distributed by schools. Multiple language versions of these documents will be available soon. Here is the link: browardschools.com/parentinfo.
Back to School Online Forms: Parents with returning students can fill out the required forms, such as the emergency contact, the code of student conduct, media release form and essential student health information, through the following link: browardschools.com/bts This saves valuable time in filling out paper forms and also leads to more accurate and timely information.
BCPS Mobile App: Parents can also register to receive secure access to their child’s information via the BCPS mobile app. By registering, parents receive a user name and password and then have personalized access to student schedules, transportation routes, library obligations, attendance and grades, meal menus and other information. Key information on the BCPS mobile app, including an introductory video, and registration instructions can be found at: browardschools.com/mobileapp.
eStore: Student Online Payment center: The application for parents to submit online payments is being updated by the Business Support Center. Improvements make it easier for parents/guardians to pay for school activities online through both a computer and a mobile device. Go to: browardschools.com/osp for more information.
