Information on school tax referendum likely to go out

Parents likely to get facts on Tax referendum

Parents can expect to hear more about the Pinellas County School District's tax referendum in the weeks leading up to the Nov. 6 election. The district can't directly advocate for a ballot item, but it can put out factual information about it. School officials have asked principals to include blurbs in school newsletters and also consider automated phone calls. The tax, which generates about $30 million a year, supports teacher salaries and arts, music, reading and technology programs. It was first approved by voters in 2004.
