Your check is welcome at all schools in the Volusia County Schools.

Volusia County Schools recognizes that occasionally a parent may inadvertently overdraw a checking account and a check may be returned by your bank. In order to recover these funds in a private and professional manner, theVolusia County Schools has contracted with CHECKredi of Alabama, a company based in Huntsville, Al. for collection of returned checks.

Each person writing a check to a school or the School System should write the check on a commercially printed check with your name, address and one phone number. Counter or starter checks will not be accepted. When a person writes a check to a school or the School System, the person writing the check agrees that, if the check is returned, that it may be represented electronically on the same account, and that the fee established by law, may be debited from the same account.

If the check and fee are not collected electronically, then CHECKredi will contact you by mail and by telephone in order for you to make arrangements to pay. Payments may be made to CHECKredi by mailing to 4925 Sparkman Drive or to P.O. Box 3829 Huntsville, AL 35810. Payments of the check and fee may be made electronically at www.checkredi.com by using a credit card, debit card, or electronic check without additional fee.

Dear Parents, Guardians, and Concerned Citizens,

In an attempt to better inform parents and the public of resources that were available to the school, the Florida Legislature enacted Senate Bill 1546, which requires the distrubtion of an annual school financial report to the public. Figures are compiled by the Department of Education using the district's 2012-2013 financial data. Click on each picture icon to view the letter sent to parents and the financial report of DeLand High School.


Dear Parents and/or Guardians,

Florida's School Public Accountability Reports have been generated to comply with federal legislation that requires annual report cards on the educational progress of schools, school districts, and the state. These reports are initially published prior to the beginning of the school year. The School Public Accountability Report contains several types of data (indicators) designed to inform parents and the general public about the progress of Florida's public schools. This report meets public reporting requirements and provides certain additional information of interest on the status of Florida's schools.

Dear Parents and/or Guardians,

The Florida Department of Education as required by NCLB [Section 1111(6)(A) ESEA], states the beginning of each school year, Volusia County Schools must inform parents of their right to request information about the professional qualifications of both the teachers and the paraprofessionals who teach and work with their children. Attached are letters which explain a parent’s right to know the qualifications.
