District Application Programs for 8th Grade Students going to High School Next Year

If you are new to Pinellas County Schools’ District Application Programs, I want to invite you to join me for a Facebook and YouTube Live event next Tuesday, Oct. 11 at 5:30 pm.  

This LIVE District Application Program session will help walk you through what can be an overwhelming experience as we have 82 different magnet and fundamental programs.  

I will give you an introduction about what District Application Programs are, the difference between magnet and fundamental programs, and how to approach the process of narrowing down your choices. I will provide tips on how to learn more about the different options, participate in DAP fairs, and explore programs more in-depth at Discovery Night.  

You will be able to ask questions and get answers about the different opportunities for your student. 


Do not worry if this time does not work for your schedule as both platforms will be recorded and available for you to watch at any time.  

Additionally, please mark your calendars for these upcoming DAP Events:
