Please follow drop-off and pick-up procedures at all times. Remember: Students should not be dropped off prior to 8:15am as there is no adult supervision.

Dear Central 6th Grade Parents/Guardians:

As the 2014 FCAT Scores have been received and posted, the School Board of Broward County (SBBC) routinely sends GEM Math Invitations to all Broward County students, including those students enrolled in charter schools. As we have our own criteria for placement in the 6th grade Advanced and Pre-Algebra math courses for students entering 6th grade. Consequently, it IS NOT necessary to sign and return the letters received from the SBBC to the charter school. Please disregard.

Thank you for your assistance with this request.
