Education news and notes from Tampa Bay and Florida

Get ready for another student assignment plan, Pinellas!



You may have heard Pinellas County School Board is looking at reassigning school zones again.

Beginning tomorrow, 34 people -- educators, school district employees and four parents -- will begin meeting at district offices in Largo to talk about a variety of scenarios including whether to expand fundamental schools, divide the district into two or three high school areas, and/or duplicate magnet programs in various parts of the county.
