Workshop materials added to Pinellas County Schools' website



Perhaps we should file this under "better late than never."

Back up materials for the Pinellas County School Board's work session today were added to the district's website sometime after the meeting started. Most of the items associated with the agenda were missing from the website Wednesday, making it difficult for the public to understand what the School Board planned to discuss Thursday.

The School Board doesn't vote during work sessions.

As The Gradebook noted Wednesday, state law clearly calls for public agencies to put online the agenda and supporting materials prior to meetings and workshops. District officials haven't been doing that lately, even though the materials have been distributed in advance to the School Board.

The School Board is discussing today the coming year's proposed budget, its strategic plan, and a proposal to shift its police officers to the Pinellas County Sheriff's Office, among other things.
