Apply for two new technology magnets soon

The Pinellas County School District has scheduled a special application period from March 12-17 for two new magnet schools focusing on technology. Kings Highway and Gulf Beaches elementary schools closed a few years ago, but the district plans to reopen them as Centers for Innovation and Digital Learning. A final School Board vote approving the schools is expected soon. Families wanting to learn more are invited to a Discovery Night at 6 p.m. March 11 at the Pinellas County Schools Administration Building, 301 Fourth St. SW, Largo. For more information, call the district's Student Assignment office at (727) 588-6210.

New students need to register

Registration will open March 3 for new students entering Pinellas public schools for the 2014-15 school year. Students must be 5 years old on or before Sept. 1, 2014, to attend kindergarten. The district is urging parents to register children by June 4, whether they will be in kindergarten or other grades. To find out more, visit or call (727) 588-6210.
