Message from the Superintendent
Dear Parents,It’s a pleasure to welcome you and your child to a new school year. As your superintendent, I am committed to working with our staff, parents and community members to ensure that all students have a safe and productive learning environment.
The 2018-19 Student Code of Conduct provides expectations for student behavior that support personal growth and promote student learning. Please read each page carefully and familiarize yourself with parental responsibilities. Encourage your child to read the Code of Conduct and discuss it with you, too. Together, we can ensure your child reaches his or her full potential.
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, and submit it 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 www.pcsb.org/code. If there are updates to the code during the school year, you’ll find them there, too. If you have questions about policies or procedures, please contact your child’s principal to discuss them.
Parental involvement is crucial to student success. Thank you for partnering with us in your child’s education. With your collaboration, we can achieve our mission of educating and preparing each student for college, career and life.
Michael A. Grego, Ed.D.
*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.
