Message from the Superintendent

  • Dear Parents,

    Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year! Pinellas County Schools is committed to growing the greatness that is within every child. As we start a new year, I encourage each student to commit themselves to a year of growth with the goal of reaching their fullest potential. As superintendent, I’m committed to ensuring that your child has a safe and productive learning environment so that they are able to reach that goal.

    The 2019-20 Student Code of Conduct provides expectations for student behavior that promote student learning and support personal growth. We ask parents and students to carefully read each page and familiarize yourself with the responsibilities and actions that will result in a successful school year. We encourage parents and students to discuss the Code of Conduct so that everyone understands how to create a positive learning environment and experience for all students.

    Parent Action: After you and your child review the Student Code of Conduct, please sign the Parent and Student Acknowledgement Form, which can be found on page 7. Please submit the signed form to your child’s school OR complete the electronic signature option through the Student Reservation System. There are directions in the box below.

    The Student Code of Conduct is available online at pcsb.org/code. If there are updates to the code during the school year, you will find them there, too. Contact your child’s principal if you have questions about policies and procedures.

    Thank you for partnering with us. We believe that parental involvement is imperative to student success, and that together, we can ensure that students graduate from the district prepared for college, career and life.

    Sincerely,

    Michael A. Grego, Ed.D.

    Superintendent

    Electronic Signature Option

    Four parent forms are available for electronic signature. You may sign them electronically instead of submitting hard copies to your child’s school. Log in to the student reservation system, and select “PCS Forms.” The following four forms are available for electronic signature:

     

    • Parent and Student Acknowledgement (hard copy, page 7 of the Code of Conduct)

    • Directory Information Opt-Out (hard copy, page 11 of the Code of Conduct)

    • Network/Internet Acceptable Use Agreement (hard copy provided by your child’s school)

    • Media Release Form (hard copy provided by your child’s school)

     

    Please note: The Parent and Student Acknowledgement and Directory Information Opt-Out forms apply only for the school year in which they are signed. The Network/Internet Acceptable Use Agreement and Media Release forms once signed, are active the entire time your child is enrolled in Pinellas County Schools and do not need to be re-submitted each school year.
