Magnet, fundamental school application to begin


Application for school programs starts monday

The application period for the Pinellas County School District's magnet, fundamental and career academy programs for the 2009-10 academic year begins Monday and continues through Feb. 16.

Parents of children not currently enrolled in the district, including incoming kindergarteners and private or homeschooled students, must bring a photo ID to a nearby school by Feb. 13 to get a password before they can apply. The password will allow the parent to use the district's Student Reservation System to get the child's student identification number online.

To make school selections, call the district's automated phone system at (727) 501-0871 and follow the step-by-step instructions. The phone system will be activated at 8 a.m. Monday and will be available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, until 5 p.m. Feb. 16.

Parents will need the 10-digit student ID number, the child's birth date and the program ID numbers, which can be found in the district's program guide. The guide is available at schools and on the district's Web site,


Volunteers to take homeless census

Beginning at 5 a.m. Monday, more than 200 volunteers will spread throughout Pinellas County for the annual count and survey of homeless people.

The volunteers will visit nearly 250 sites over a four-day period in an effort to count and document the needs of every homeless person.

For more information about participating in this year's count, call the coalition office at (727) 528-5832.
