    The renewal of Pinellas County Schools Referendum will be on the Nov. 8 general election ballot. The Referendum strengthens reading, art and music programs, provides up-to-date technology, and helps recruit and retain quality teachers. Voters overwhelmingly supported the Referendum three times, including its initial approval in 2004. An independent citizens committee oversees Referendum expenditures to ensure money is spent as voters intended. The Referendum costs the average single-family homeowner less than $5.50 a month. Every penny of the funding goes directly to Pinellas County classrooms. For more information, please visit and to view a video
