Complying with class size



Nal_blantonaerial10_42462c_2 As the deadline for meeting the 2002 class-size reduction amendment nears, Pinellas leaders are taking steps to get schools ready. That means $144-million in classroom additions and portables, in order to have enough space for fewer students per class.

The biggest project: 33 new classrooms for Palm Harbor University High. The most new portables go to Blanton Elementary, which will get 10.
