"13 Reasons Why" Guidance for Families and Educators

The series displays mature and graphic content and is recommended for viewers 16 and older. While most students in this age group are capable of discerning between a fictional drama and real life, there is sufficient reason to provide information and education in an effort to assist those that may not.

Attached is a document from the National Association of School Psychologists (NASP) that delineates considerations, cautions, and provides guidance for educators, families and students.

The Pembroke Pines Charter School (PPCS) administration is taking a proactive stance to prevent an avoidable tragedy from occurring and we made the decision to provide this information to all of our families.  Although this is a very sensitive topic, we believe and understand that communication and education are our best approach. Along with our guidance personnel, we have consulted with local experts and fully support the recommendations and guidelines provided by the NASP.

Thank you for your continued support. Please do not hesitate to contact the administration or guidance department at your respective school if you have any additional questions or concerns.
