Pinellas parents not alone in facing closures



Closed_sign Pinellas is planning to close seven more schools. It recently closed three others. With enrollment shrinking and finances tight, there's a good chance more closures could come.

Perhaps it comes as cold comfort, but, parents, you're not alone in your angst.

In this morning's news, other media have reported:

In the past year, Volusia closed seven schools, too. Others have explored the idea. Not the most cheery of news. Should the Florida PTA create a support group?
