A LETTER FROM
Dear High School Graduate:
Congratulations on your educational success that has brought you to your high school graduation. As you are heading off to college or starting your career, I want to make sure that you have every opportunity to achieve the American dream here in Florida. As you head into the next stage of your life, know that Florida offers many opportunities to start a career or continue your education.
Having grown up in a family that struggled to make ends meet, I know the importance of each and every family having the opportunity to get a great job, and that starts with a great education. To help you explore great job opportunities here in Florida, I encourage you to explore the online job listings in Employ Florida Marketplace, employflorida.com. With nearly 300,000 job openings advertised online in our state, the marketplace works directly with Florida businesses to connect candidates with employers.
To further my commitment to helping you get a great job, the Florida First budget continues to invest in District Workforce Education programs for students earning industry certifications in targeted occupational areas, including health science and information technology.
If you are continuing your education by going to college, you will need to choose a major that will prepare you for a great career. This will ensure that you will be able to get a good paying job. You can use employflorida.com as a tool to see which degrees align to the available jobs as a way to help you choose a major.
To ensure that you have every opportunity possible we have helped businesses create over one million jobs in just five years, and we have worked tirelessly to make college more affordable by holding the line on tuition and enacting college affordability reforms. An affordable higher education system and a strong job market are essential for allowing Florida students to pursue their dreams here in Florida.
Again, congratulations on all of your success. As you pursue your dreams, I wish you all the best for a great future.

Dear Students and Parents of FY16 AICE Classes:
Greetings, and welcome to a wonderful new school year. Last year, Palm Beach Central High School, in only it’s third year as a Cambridge International Examinations school, tested over 1000 students in five curriculum areas (English, Fine Arts, Science, Social Studies, Business, Physical Education, Mathematics, and World Languages). This year, PBCHS has expanded it’s course offerings to include the curriculum areas of Travel and Tourism and Economics. In addition, we had 94 AICE Diploma recipients and anticipate having more AICE Diploma candidates this year.
Students who have received grades of “U” or “X” will have an opportunity to take a one time make up examination in November 2015 to replace the grade that they have received. The list of courses that are being tested in November are printed on attached document along with the testing dates. If a makeup exam is not offered in November, one will be offered in June. This make up examination is voluntary and will not change a student’s semester grade from FY15. The cost for the make up exam is $79 for the AS Level and $119 for the A Level.
If you have any questions, please email me at Larry.Greenberg.email@example.com or call me at (561) 304-1068.

TRAFFIC and STUDENT
Palm Beach Central High School is the second largest high school in the district with over 3,000 students. Amazingly, through the efforts of our dynamic faculty members and our supportive community, we have been able to keep a family and close community atmosphere, and perhaps the biggest disadvantage to our size is the traffic in the morning and afternoon. Many of our seniors have senior privilege 1st and 7th hour which helps reduce traffic, but we need your assistance. We request that you pull-up in front of the main office and band room to drop off students. Please do not drop off students in-front of or near the gymnasium. When this occurs, the net effect is that people drop off one car load at a time and this is extremely inefficient.
Secondly, we ask that you drop students off in approved locations and not in the middle of the street which creates an extremely dangerous situation for our students. Students should be using crosswalks and obeying traffic signals when crossing the street. Finally, we strive to be good neighbors with the surrounding housing developments. We ask you to be courteous of our neighborhoods joining our school. The use of housing development driveways and easements during arrival and dismissal is not allowed and is patrolled by the PBSO. Violators are subject to tickets.
REMINDER * REMINDER
If your student is not returning to Palm Beach County Public or Charter School, you must formally withdraw your student at the end of the school year. Failure to properly withdraw your student or to advise the feeder high school of the intent to not attend can prevent your student from obtaining their drivers license.
If you have any questions or need additional information, please do not hesitate to contact Palm Beach Central at 561-304-1000.
