Referendum - Technology


    The Referendum has helped Pinellas County Schools expand technology to elevate student engagement, make lessons more relevant and effectively train teachers in the latest technology.
    Thanks to the Referendum:
    • Students throughout the district have access to computer labs and updated technology that prepare them for college and careers.

    • Teachers have access to high quality software applications that promote student engagement and provide access to internet resources in a safe environment.
    • Pinellas County Schools has hired Technology Integration Coordinators who train teachers to integrate current technology into their lessons and personalize learning to the needs of each student.
