Pinellas School Board votes tonight on reassignments, closings



Scores of parents are expected to show up tonight for a Pinellas School Board vote on a budget-cutting package that would close several schools and save money on busing by moving thousands of elemen­tary school children to different schools next year.

The meeting will be at 5 p.m. at district headquarters, 301 Fourth St. SW, Largo. People who want to speak should sign in at the door. To view the board meet­ing live, go to, then click the “Watch Our Live Web Stream” link in the blue box.

The meeting will be rebroadcast on WPDS-TV 14 at 6 p.m. Wednesday and Thursday, at midnight Friday and at 8 a.m. Saturday for two weeks after the meeting. Some earlier reports incorrectly said the meeting would be broadcast live.
