The textbook return program for BCPS Dual Enrollment students taking Dual Enrollment classes on a Broward College campus will begin on December 8, 2014 and end on January 5, 2015.
All Broward County Public School students taking a Broward College Dual Enrollment course on a Broward College campus must return their textbooks to any Broward College bookstore during this time period. The student will be given a receipt for the textbooks returned which they should keep for their records. Students who fail to return their textbooks within the allotted time frame will have an obligation placed against them.
The PSAT results were passed out to the students this week.
We hope that the students and parents will utilize these results and take advantage of the information provided in their score report.
Please encourage your child to use the access code printed on the bottom of their score report and set up an account to access my College Quick Start.
The website for college quick start is collegeboard.org/quickstart and they should enter the access code that is printed on their score report.
From the My College Quick Start Account students may receive information on the following topics: My Online Score Report, My SAT study Plan, My Personality, My Major and Career Matches, My College Matches and My AP Potential.
When we register for the 15-16 school year, results of AP potential are provided to students and faculty to assist students in planning their courses and suggesting possible AP courses to consider.
Attached is a very short video prepared by College Board that explains the PSAT score report in detail.
