Pinellas County Schools rolls out Summer Reading incentives


As part of Pinellas County Schools Summer Reading initiative, the school district has created a summer reading site to help students stay on top of their reading and log their summer reading time. The site is available on the home page of the PCS website or at

Thanks to the generosity of donors, the district has plenty of books for students in Pinellas County Schools.
