The Pinellas County school system still is looking for a new communications director.

Donna Winchester, the former director of strategic communications, left the school district in August for a gig at the University of Florida. The School Board agreed to downgrade the requirements of the position after Winchester's departure. Human Resources posted the job Friday. Applications will be accepted until Oct. 17.

Winchester had worked at the school district since 2009, after about a decade at the Times. She left the school district to become the director of communications for UF, leading a couple major initiatives.
