Plantation District and Curriculum
Broward County Public Schools has based its curriculum upon the Common Core State Standards and the Next Generation Sunshine State Standards. These standards are put in place to ensure that all students receive the best education they possibly can so that they can academically succeed. The Language Arts/Reading curriculum in K-12th is built upon these key concepts or strands: literature, foundational skills, informational text, writing, speaking and listening, and language. In elementary school, these strands are mastered through phonics, grammar, mechanics, research, and vocabulary. The strands are reinforced in middle school through writing, speaking, reading, listening, analyzing text, and gaining information from different media. In high school, the strands are rounded out by showing command of the English language when it is written and spoken, completing long-term writing assignments, writing in a variety of styles, conducting research, and using technology to write.
We currently cover the following Plantation-area school districts: Broward County Public Schools.

The K-12 Science curriculum is based on 18 Big Ideas presented in the Next Generation Sunshine State Standards.

The K-12 Mathematics curriculum guides students through a progression of concepts. In elementary school, students work through counting, cardinality, operations in base ten, fractions, geometry, categorical data, measurement, and algebraic thinking. Middle school students progress through geometry, expressions, equations, ratios, proportional relationships, statistics, and probability. In high school, students continue to build upon all the previous concepts and study statistics and probability more deeply.

Chalk Talk: Understanding Your Scholarship Opportunities
One part of the college planning process is understanding the scholarship opportunities that are available, and there are many. Scholarships are better than loans because they do not need to be paid back. Often, scholarships are offered to students who are part of special-interest groups or have special skills. Scholarship applications are time-consuming to fill out, so gather all the necessary information first. Be sure to have name, address, Social Security number, date of birth, citizenship status, and family income available. It takes weeks or even months to receive scholarships after the application has been submitted, so begin at least a year ahead of time. And do not overlook any small scholarships, every little bit helps toward funding college.
