deadline for new tech magnets approaches
The special application period ends at midnight Monday for two new magnet schools focusing on technology. Kings Highway Elementary in Clearwater and Gulf Beaches Elementary in St. Pete Beach closed in 2009, but the district plans to reopen them as Centers for Innovation and Digital Learning. The Pinellas County School Board approved the new schools last week. Apply at reservation.pcsb.org. To complete the process, families must log in again Wednesday to Friday to accept invitations. For information, call the school district at (727) 588-6210.
