TSIC Broward is going virtual!

Here at TSIC Broward we are excited to start delivering services to our 200 Broward County Public School Scholars through virtual platforms beginning as early as next week! Below is an outline of how we plan to deliver these services. Students and parents will be completing a 2020-2021 TSIC Broward Virtual Services Acknowledgement Form in order for us to move forward with a fully online service model for this school year. We have also placed an emphasis on ensuring every one of our scholars is successful in completing their virtual classwork and assignments.

Below is a synopsis on how College Success Coach Meetings and Mentoring Sessions will be delivered. In addition, we will be uploading quick tutorials on how our students and mentors can participate in the activities listed below. Stay tuned...

  1. College Success Coaches will be meeting with students on a quarterly basis during study hall, before or after school. Protocol is Juniors and Seniors will meet once every quarter, 6th-10th Grades once per semester. All meetings will be held virtually using Microsoft Teams and we are requiring students to have audio and video capabilities.
