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 pcsb.org 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.
