Sessions explore magnet, fundamental, career academy programs

After a break for Thanksgiving week, the schedule for school discovery nights picks up again in the coming days with 14 special programs opening their doors to Pinellas families.

Discovery nights are for students, parents and guardians interested in exploring magnet, fundamental and career academy programs for the 2014-15 school year. They give families a chance to see the schools and talk with educators who staff and run the programs.

The sessions continue through Jan. 8, when the application period for special programs begins.

Separately, many programs also offer tours and opportunities for prospective students to "shadow" older students during a school day. Families should contact individual programs for information on these visits.

To learn more, go to pcsb.org.
