Retired K-12 social studies supervisor for Pinellas schools Randy Lightfoot, who is now an instructor at St. Petersburg College, led a tour of the Pinellas County African American History Museum in Clearwater on Friday for about 40 sixth-, seventh-, and eighth-graders. About half were in Students Targeted for Educational Programs. As part of the STEP program, students explore ways to celebrate diverse cultures. One project this school year was learning and writing about achievement gaps and how to narrow the gaps.
