Great American Teach-In will be held November 21 in Pinellas | Events
Pinellas County, Florida -- Members of the community are invited into Pinellas County schools for an hour, a few class periods or an entire school day to share with students information about their career or hobby, to organize an activity, to read a story or to teach a class.
Teach-In participants will be able to see Pinellas County public schools and interact with students firsthand. For alumni of Pinellas County Schools, the annual event is an excellent opportunity to return to old classrooms in elementary, middle or high schools, and visit favorite teachers or staff members.
In addition to elementary, middle and high schools, there also are dropout-prevention programs, exceptional education schools, and alternative schools that are seeking speakers. For those unable to participate during traditional school hours, technical education centers and community schools also have availability. These schools are open from 7:30 a.m. to 9:30 p.m.
Brochures with registration forms are available in all schools and at the PCS Administration Building, Largo, 301 Fourth St. SW, Largo. Forms may be returned to any Pinellas County public school, or mailed to Pinellas County Schools, Attn: Dr. Valerie Brimm, P.O. Box 2942, Largo, FL 33779-2942. The registration deadline is Nov. 7.
