The process to apply for magnet, fundamental or career programs in the Pinellas County School District intensifies this week with the first of many discovery nights and the last of two information fairs.
Discovery nights give parents, guardians and students a chance to tour schools, meet teachers and administrators and ask questions about the programs. All discovery nights begin at 6 p.m. and typically last 60 to 90 minutes.
Those who can't make it to a discovery night can get a feel for numerous programs at one location. The district's final information fair is scheduled from 6 to 8 p.m. Tuesday at Gibbs High School, 850 34th St. S in St. Petersburg. Representatives from each program will be there with information and answers to questions.
Now is the time to get informed on the district's special programs before the application period, Jan. 8-17.
