Pinellas County Center for the Arts at Gibbs High has a Discovery Night on Thursday.

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.

For details on school locations, visit pcsb.org. For more information about special programs, contact individual schools or the Office of Advanced Studies at (727) 588-6466. For information about the application process, contact the Student Assignment Office at (727) 588-6210.
