Students in the Pinellas County public school system will take final exams and finish the first semester before winter break in the 2014-15 school year, the School Board agreed Tuesday. Previously, the first semester ended in January, which often meant students needed to study over the holidays. In another calendar change, schools also would switch to two grading periods per semester instead of three. The board voted unanimously to approve the changes.
