Pinellas County Schools Referendum helps support the Book Bus
The Referendum provides reading materials to enhance instruction. Middle and high schools have become print-rich environments, where students have access to relevant texts and software. Funds also pay for literacy intervention programs, specialized reading programs and teacher training.
Thanks to the Referendum:
- All math, science and social studies classrooms are equipped with diverse and up-to-date reading materials to supplement core instruction.
- Middle and high school reading classrooms receive materials that would not otherwise be available, including instructional software, and engaging fiction and nonfiction.
- The Leveled Literacy Intervention (LLI) program, which focuses on struggling readers in grades K-2, was expanded program to all elementary schools.
- Reading teachers have opportunities to train with nationally recognized literacy experts.
