Did you get your school choice? Check starting Monday

Pinellas parents, you can start finding out Monday if your children have been accepted into the magnet school, fundamental school or other school choice programs they applied to.

You must log in to the district's student reservation system. Go to the Pinellas schools home page at and look on the right side for the second big square from the top, between PDS-TV 14 and the Pinellas Education Foundation.

You will need your user ID and password.

The acceptance period ends Monday, March 8.

Your child will be invited to join a school/program, be put on a waiting list or be ineligible. You can either accept or decline an invitation. The process is not first-come, first-served, so it will not matter when during the acceptance period you log in.

If your child is on a waiting list, the system will note what number he or she is initially. That number will not change between Monday and March 8. But it might afterward, when the system adjusts to reflect the choices that parents made during the acceptance period.

Beginning March 9, you can call the school to find out where your child stands on the waiting list. The student reservation system will list the name and phone number of the school-based coordinator you need to contact.

    For all the attention on Florida Democratic Chairman Stephen Bittel's bone headed gaffe this week, the diminished state of the once mighty Florida GOP today compared to even a few years ago is arguably more striking than the condition of the long-suffering Florida Democratic Party. A decade ago, no one would have …

  4. Will new laws protect condo owners from apartment conversions and rogue associations?

    Real Estate

    Danny Di Nicolantonio has lived in St. Petersburg's Calais Village Condominums for 33 years. Annoyed at times by the actions, or inaction, of the condo board and property managers, he has complained to the state agency that is supposed to investigate.

    That has left him even more annoyed.

    A bill passed by the Florida Legislature would affect places like The Slade in Tampa's Channelside district, where cCondominium owners have battled a plan to convert homes into apartments.

  5. Walmart opens first Pinellas County in-house training academy


    Seminole — It had all the hallmarks of a typical graduation: robe-clad graduates marching in to Pomp and Circumstance, friends and family packed together under a sweltering tent and a lineup of speakers encouraging the graduates to take charge of their future.

    New Walmart Academy graduates are congratulated Thursday morning by associates during a graduation ceremony at the Walmart store, 10237 Bay Pines Boulevard, St. Petersburg. The Walmart location is one of the company's training academies where managers complete a one week retail course. David Shultz and Richard Sheehan, both from St. Petersburg, get high fives from the crowd.
