Pinellas will do survey
This year's climate survey isn't dead after all. A week after the Pinellas County School District said it wasn't doing an annual climate survey this year — because it needed to be revised — the district sent e-mails to employees Friday saying it will do one.
"You responses have provided valuable feedback in the past and will continue to present us with beneficial information to improve the learning and teaching environment in Pinellas County Schools," the e-mail said.
District spokeswoman Andrea Zahn said by e-mail that the research and accountability department had hoped to find an improved survey instrument more aligned to strategic initiatives, but concluded there was not enough time to do that. So it revised the existing survey by clarifying, deleting and changing some questions, and adding more comment sections. Zahn said there is no specific deadline to respond.
Schools will provide summer meals
Nutritionally balanced meals will be provided free to children 18 and younger during the summer when school breakfasts and lunches are not available. Various public school locations provide meals to all children in the immediate vicinity, in addition to those enrolled in summer programs. Meal times are approximate. For exact times, contact the specific location. For more information about summer program school sites, contact Gray Miller at (727) 547-7155.
