To help families prepare for the 2017/18 school year, Broward County Public Schools (BCPS) Back to School online resource is now available on the District’s website at

The Back to School online resource links families to information about the school calendar; school opening/closing times; the Code Book for Student Conduct; before and after school child care; breakfast and lunch menus; transportation services; back to school immunizations; and much more.

There are also resources to help parents and guardians get involved in their child’s education, monitor academic progress, learn about services for English Language Learners and multilingual families, and stay informed about What’s New this school year.

As a reminder, the first day of school for BCPS students is Monday, Aug. 21, 2017.  Four District schools that follow a year-round calendar – Colbert Museum Magnet, Lake Forest Elementary School, Watkins Elementary School and McNicol Middle School – begin on Wednesday, Aug. 9, 2017.

BCPS is proud to be a national leader in providing innovative, high-quality learning experiences for all students – and schools are excited to get the 2017/18 school year started! Families, community members, business partners and BCPS employees are encouraged to share their Back to School photos and message via social media using #BCPSFirst.  Follow the countdown to the first day of school on Twitter @browardschools and on Facebook at
