    Pinellas County Schools Referendum benefits teachers and students.

    The renewal of Pinellas County Schools Referendum will be on the ballot for the Nov. 3 General Election. The Referendum boosts reading, art and music programs, provides up-to-date technology and textbooks, and helps recruit and retain quality teachers.

    Voters have supported the Referendum every four years since its initial approval in 2004. An independent citizens committee oversees Referendum expenditures to ensure money is spent as voters intended. Every penny of the funding directly benefits Pinellas teachers and students.

    The Referendum provides diverse classroom libraries and powerful small-group literacy programs that help students read at grade level. Thanks to the Referendum, Pinellas schools have computer labs, interactive whiteboards, and the latest technology to engage students in learning and prepare them for college and careers. The Referendum also funds trainers who help teachers integrate technology into their lessons.

    The Referendum supports Pinellas County Schools nationally recognized music and arts programs. The Referendum funds music, theater and dance equipment, musical instruments, band uniforms and sound systems. Thanks to the Referendum, all schools receive equitable funding for quality art supplies, equipment and technology.

    Every penny of Referendum funding benefits Pinellas public school students and teachers. An independent committee oversees Referendum spending to ensure that money is spent as voters intended. For more information, please visit  www.pcsb.org/referendum.
