MIDTERM EXAM SCHEDULE

December 16th – Blocks 1 & 3
December 17th – Blocks 6 & 8
December 18th – Blocks 5 & 7
Parents: This year the end of the 2nd quarter marking period comes prior to the winter break. Please be aware that midterms are given prior to the end of the marking period and can affect your child’s quarterly grade.
Students taking High School credit courses must take midterm exams as they are noted as a separate grade on the students’ report card and are averaged with the two quarterly grades to produce the semester grade. Students who are not present for the midterm exam in a high school credit course will be given an “I” (incomplete) until the exam is made up.
It is very important that you mark the midterm exam dates and make sure your child is present on those days, except in case of emergency or illness. Thank you for your attention to this matter. If you have any questions please contact our guidance department at (754) 323-4220.

NOTIFICATION OF VIRTUAL INSTRUCTION PROGRAM OPEN ENROLLMENT

A virtual instruction program offers students a flexible option to attend a public school using distance and online learning technologies. The enrollment window for Broward County students entering grades 6 through 12 opens May 1 and closes September 30, 2013. Enrollment for students entering grades K-5 opens April 19 and closes July 19, 2013. Students must meet criteria to qualify for enrollment.

Middle School Civics
The State Board of Education adopted new K-12 Social Studies Standards in 2008 called the Next Generation Sunshine State Standards (NGSSS). These standards, which must be implemented beginning in the 2012-2013 school year, are aligned with the instructional materials adoption and implementation of new K-12 social studies textbooks. In 2010, the State Legislature passed the Justice Sandra Day O’Connor Civics Education Act: HB 105 which has been written into the 2011 Florida Statute Title XLVIII Education Code. The Statute can be found at www.myflorida.com. This law requires middle school students to take a Civics course and earn a passing score on an end-of -course Civics exam. Beginning in 2012-2013, a yearlong Civics course will replace the current Geography course. Geography standards are embedded within the Civics course as well as in the other middle school social studies courses. A field test will be administered to select middle schools throughout the state in 2012-2013 and beginning in 2013-2014, seventh grade students will be required to take a Civics end-of course exam that will count for 30% of their final grade. In 2014-2015, students will be required to earn a passing score on the exam in order to receive course credit and be promoted to high school. Please note: Students entering sixth grade in 2012-2013 will be the first group of students affected by this new legislation.
Attention 6th Grade Parents:
Please be sure your child’s immunizations are up to date to enter the 7th grade.
Please submit a new Florida 680 Certificate of Immunization to the guidance office.
