Broward students began their first day of school Tuesday, looking ahead toward the new academic year.
Teachers greeted students as they arrived, and Schools Superintendent Vickie Cartwright and School Board members were at campuses, too, to celebrate the day.
Early Tuesday morning, Cartwright first visited the bus terminal in Pompano Beach. The district operates one of the largest fleets of school buses in the U.S., with 1,200 school buses. All buses are equipped with GPS technology to track school bus locations, which will help with plans to offer parents a school-bus tracking app this year.
Cartwright plans to make many more visits to school campuses throughout the day. Cartwright next headed to Coral Glades High School in Coral Springs, where she met with students.
“I am excited to welcome our students and families to the new school year,” Cartwright said in a statement.
