Want a new school? Ask by friday

Pinellas parents who would like to request a different school for the 2010-11 academic year can do so through Friday.

The district's student assignment open enrollment period began Monday for those seeking to switch their children from their assigned school. There will be a limited number of seats available this year due to class size and requirements of No Child Left Behind, according to district officials.

Students do not lose their current seat by requesting another school. To participate, log in to the Student Reservation System on the district website, pcsb.org, using your family's user ID and password. A user ID and password can be obtained at any nearby school.

Parents will be notified by phone or e-mail in late spring. For more information, call (727) 588-6210 or visit pcsb.org.

Program to explain details of citizenship

The district's English for Speakers of Other Languages Family Outreach Office will hold a free information night Tuesday from 6:30 to 8 p.m. at Pinellas Park Middle School, 6940 70th Ave. N.

The topic: a Path to Citizenship, which will include information on the naturalization process, new naturalization test, rights and responsibilities of U.S. citizenship, and a video on test taking and interviews. Interpreters will be provided per request.

For information, contact the ESOL office, (727) 588-6543. For Spanish interpretation, call Marlene Ullmann, (727) 545-6400, ext. 2012.
