Message from the Superintendent

  • Dear Parents,

    We look forward to another successful school year with you and your child. With your support and the work of our incredible staff, we are confident that our school district will perform at its best. The 2017-18 Student Code of Conduct provides expectations for student behavior that are conducive to high levels of learning. Please discuss Pinellas County Schools’ policies and values with your student and familiarize yourself with parental responsibilities. Together, we can ensure your child reaches his or her full potential.

    The Student Code of Conduct includes information that addresses:

    • Frequently asked questions about procedural practices; privacy rights that you and your student have; attendance and dress code; and communication expectations.

    Parent Action: After reviewing the Student Code of Conduct, please submit a signed copy of the Parent and Student Acknowledgement Form (page 7) to your child’s school or complete the electronic signature option through the Student Reservation System (see box below).

    The Student Code of Conduct is available online at www.pcsb.org/code. Any updates to the document during the school year can be found there. If you have questions about policies or procedures, please contact your child’s principal to schedule a time to discuss them.

    Thank you for partnering with us in your child’s education. We look forward to upholding the district’s commitment to children, families and the community; respectful and caring relationships; cultural competence; integrity; responsibility and connectedness. Your support will help us fulfill our mission of educating and preparing each student for college, career and life.

    Sincerely,

    Michael A. Grego, Ed.D.
    Superintendent

    *NEW* Electronic Signature Option

    Four parent forms are available for electronic signature. You may sign applicable forms 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 available in Code of Conduct, page 7)

    Directory Information Opt-Out (hard copy available in 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 are applicable to 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.
