Referendum - Performing Arts

  • Modern dance performance

    The Referendum enhances performing arts programs across the district through additional equipment, increased teacher training, new band uniforms, guest artist presentations, field trips to performing arts venues, better sound systems and auditorium upgrades.

    The money enables the district to waive instrument rental fees for children who cannot afford them, ensuring that all students are able to pursue their love of music regardless of their family’s financial situation.

    Thanks to the Referendum:

    • All schools receive funding for music, theater and dance equipment, technology, sound systems, uniforms and materials that support award-winning performing arts programs.
    • Pinellas was able to rebuild its string orchestra program. Without the Referendum, there would be no funding for string instruments, string teachers and the All County string program.
    • Teachers and students have opportunities to work with nationally recognized conductors, artists and clinicians.
    • Partnerships with professional arts organizations bring performing artists into schools, support field trips and performance opportunities for 15,000 students each year.
