April 30 deadline for picking new school
Pinellas parents who would like to request a different school for the 2010-2011 academic year can do so through April 30.
The district's student assignment open enrollment period began Monday for those seeking to switch their child 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 into 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.
