Education news and notes from Tampa Bay and Florida

Learn more about new Pinellas health care options



Employees of the Pinellas County School District, take note. The school district has a bunch of information up on its web site to inform you about changes to its health insurance for 2013. 

If you recall, the unions and the school district clashed earlier this summer about a health insurance proposal that would have dramatically increased out-of-pocket costs for employees. The two sides then came up with a proposal that included three different options, giving employees a little more latitude. (See a previous blog post here.)

At Tuesday's board workshop, district staff said the change saved the district about $13 million.
