Sixty e-textbooks available to Broward students, parents, teachers

Sixty electronic textbooks (e-textbooks) are available to Broward students, parents and teachers online through the District’s Broward Enterprise Education Portal (BEEP).

The District’s e-textbook initiative began in 2006 with K-12 science textbooks and has grown with each district-wide textbook adoption since then.  A full-complement of e-textbooks is available for courses with district-wide adoptions in mathematics, reading, science and world languages.  In addition, publishers have voluntarily offered their available e-textbooks for secondary social studies courses.  Additional e-textbooks will be added with upcoming annual, district-wide textbook adoptions.

In addition to the convenience of being able to access a textbook online, the online versions provide opportunities for practice problems and self-assessment.  Parents may also read the text to struggling readers.

Students and parents can access student editions of e-textbooks by going to (, clicking on the Student or Parent Portal and entering their BEEP username and password, which is the same as their Virtual Counselor username and password.  If a student or parent needs help with their username and/or password they should contact their school.

Teachers may access the e-textbooks by going to the website, selecting the Teacher Portal and entering their BEEP username and password.
