Volusia County Schools is actively preparing for the start of school and has created a Reopening Roadmap website as a resource for families, employees, and the greater community. The Reopening Roadmap 2020-2021 is available at www.vcsedu.org.

The Volusia County School Board voted on July 21 to push back the start of the 2020-2021 student school year by two weeks – to Monday, August 31. The School Board also approved an innovative fall reopening plan with safety measures in place and options for families and teachers.

Families should review the three Learning Options available to make the best decision for their children. To help VCS properly plan, parents and guardians are asked to complete a pre-registration form for each child enrolled in VCS no later than Noon Thursday, July 30. The form is available on the Reopening Roadmap 2020-2021 website.


DELAND – Volusia County Schools is pleased to announce the Florida Department of Education has approved the innovative Volusia Live option (real-time live streaming) for the 2020-2021 school year.
For the school year that starts Aug. 31, families can choose from three Learning Options:
  • Traditional Classroom Setting (as directed by Florida Department of Education) with health and safety guidelines
  • Volusia Live (real-time live streaming) with student's school of enrollment
  • Enhanced Volusia Online Learning (enrollment deadline is July 31; visit www.volusiaonlinelearning.com for more information)

We are still offering Parent Information Sessions about the reopening plan the week of July 27. Two Spanish sessions have also been added. Sessions are offered by level (elementary, middle, or high school), and parents only need to attend one session per level.
