Pinellas County Schools plans to open the Center for Literacy Innovation to serve students in grades 1-4 who have a specific pattern of reading difficulties.


The program, located at the former Palm Harbor Elementary School, will provide a systematic, multisensory, structured approach to literacy instruction.  Students will have opportunities for remediation in reading, writing and math, and schoolwide enrichment will be provided.  The Center for Literacy Innovation will serve students in the North County application area.


An information session about the program, screening process and how to apply will be held:


  • Tuesday, Jan. 22 from 6 to 7:30 p.m. at Palm Harbor University High, located at 1900 Omaha St. in Palm Harbor.
