New School Board holds first meeting

Pinellas County's new School Board got off to an official — and quick — start Tuesday morning.

In an organizational meeting that lasted about 13 minutes, the board installed a new member, approved leadership and set its schedule for the next year.

Board member Carol Cook will serve as the chairwoman through November 2013. Peggy O'Shea will be the vice chairwoman during that time.

Janet Clark was appointed as the board's liaison to the Florida School Board Association; Terry Krassner will be an alternate.

Minutes after the invocation and pledge, newly elected member Rene Flowers was sworn in. She beamed as she took the oath.
