Fundamental, magnet school workshops set
The Pinellas County School District is holding three workshops at different locations this month to teach parents how to apply for magnet, fundamental and career academy programs. All of the workshops will begin at 7 p.m. on the following dates:
• Nov. 14 at Pinellas Park High, 6305 118th Ave. N, Largo
• Nov. 27 at Gibbs High, 850 34th St. S, St. Petersburg
• Nov. 29 at Countryside High, 3000 State Road 580, Clearwater
Parents interested in these programs should also mark their calendars for Information Fairs that showcase magnet, fundamental and career academy programs. These fairs give parents and prospective students a chance to talk with school representatives:
• Districtwide Information Fair, 9 a.m. to noon, Dec. 1, at Pinellas Park High
• South County Information Fair, 6 to 8 p.m., Dec. 4, at Gibbs High
Schools that offer these programs will also host their own Discovery Nights in December and January. The application period for these programs is Jan. 9-23.
