Learn this week about invitation to programs
Starting Wednesday, Pinellas families who applied for a seat in a magnet, fundamental or high school career program for 2013-14 can check with the school district to see if their students have been invited to a program. The acceptance period ends at midnight Feb. 20. Failing to accept an invitation by that date will render a child's application invalid. To accept an invitation, log on to the Student Reservation System at pcsb.org. Families with multiple invitations can change their selection as long as they do so by Feb. 20.
Financial aid help
Students and parents can get one-on-one help completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid, or FAFSA, at upcoming events sponsored by St. Petersburg College. College-bound students need to complete the FAFSA if they want to apply for financial aid, including the Bright Futures Scholarship. The sessions are from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. at these locations: Dunedin High, Feb. 19; Lakewood High, Feb. 26; and Largo High, March 12.
