Beginning Thursday, November 1, parents can submit applications for their children to attend a Choice and Career program for the 2019-2020 school year. The School District of Palm Beach County offers more than 300 Choice and Career options from Kindergarten through 12th grade at 117 different campuses across the District. Parents are encouraged to apply online.
The deadlines to apply differ, depending on the programs selected, as some require auditions.
The School District of Palm Beach County is once again partnering with Healthy Schools and the Florida Health Department of Palm Beach County to offer flu shot clinics in schools, providing the annual vaccine at no cost to students and school staff.
This year, parents are encouraged to register their children for the free flu shot at their school at www.palmbeachflu.com. Parents who are unable to register online can submit the registration form directly from their child’s school. Once vaccinated, the student will receive paperwork to take home for their records.
A new app that allows students, parents and staff to report threats and suspicious activity directly to local law enforcement has launched.
The app, called StudentProtect, a collaboration between the School District of Palm Beach County, District Police Department and Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office, has the ability for the user to dial 911 and have the exact GPS location of their mobile device sent to first responders. Users can also subscribe to specific schools to receive alerts and notifications from law enforcement. Available for Apple and Android devices by searching “PBC StudentProtect”.
The Florida Standards Assessment (FSA) website has been updated and contains the 2018-2019 assessment schedule. This site also provides access to general information about the FSA and links to other resources to help parents better understand the assessments and to prepare their students.
