To Parents of 8th Grade Students:


We are excited to inform you that the School District of Manatee County has published the “Connections” guide for eighth grade students and their parents. “Connections” provides critically important information regarding high school, college, and career planning. This includes what you need to know about college scholarships and Florida Bright Futures, high school graduation requirements, the FCAT, and much more.
