Volusia County Schools is a large, urban district located in central Florida and extending to the coast of Daytona Beach. Our student population is 62,000. We are the largest employer in the county with approximately 4,000 instructional and administrative personnel. Under the direction of a new Superintendent, School Board and Senior Staff, we have embarked on a journey in the last year to break down the silos between technology, curriculum, facilities, and professional learning to unify our efforts under three guiding principles and one vision that includes a superior 21st century education fueled by a commitment to future ready, personalized learning for all. Rather than making sweeping change through dissemination of new technology and shifting funding toward 100% digital materials, we are focused on the growth mindset of the leadership, instructional personnel, students, and community stakeholders. More important than the tech, is preparing every adult to embrace the shift toward a future ready district through public focus groups, intensive professional learning, expansion of access, and curation of digital curriculum that supports all learning environments from virtual instructional program to blended learning classrooms and everything in between.
