Pinellas targets achievement gap



Superintendent Mike Grego invited about 100 district officials, community and business leaders, teachers, principals, students and law enforcement officers to a summit last week for a "call to action" on the achievement gap between black students and their peers in Pinellas.

Participants were asked to envision a future in which Pinellas becomes a national leader in tackling the gap. To start, they came up with future headlines and images. Then participants broke out into groups to talk about Grego's plan, called Bridging the Gap.
