Please know that none of the items available for purchase are critical or required for the first days of school, however, we realize that our bulldogs like to get a head start on their supplies and items that make their school year complete. THERE WILL BE NO SALES AUGUST 11TH - AUGUST 19TH, due to the arrival of our teachers and business of school. SALES WILL RESUME ON Wednesday, August 20th during both lunches and before and after school.


We apologize for the late start of sales due to late arriving information from the district.

Half-Cent Extension


The School District of Volusia is asking voters to consider an extension of the half-cent, which would go into effect when the current half-cent sales tax sunsets on December 31, 2016.

Why extend the half-cent sales tax?

  • Every school and every student will benefit (see Capital Projects List).
  • This half-cent extension will be used for security, technology and facility issues – all necessary to ensure our students’ success by providing a safe and secure learning environment with 21st century tools.
  • A quality educational  system  is of major importance to businesses and economic development in Volusia County.
  • The school district has kept its promise on the use of the 2001 voter approved half-cent sales tax by completing the majority of identified school construction and renovation projects.
  • Tourists will pay 30-40% of tax revenue (entire amount will not be paid by residents).
  • Taxpayers will continue to pay the same half-cent sales tax; it is not new nor an increase.

Important information to know:

  • The half-cent voter approved sales tax can only be used for capital (facilities, technology), not general operating (salaries, instructional materials).
  • As with the 2001 half-cent sales tax, a citizens’ project oversight committee will be established to monitor the school district’s work.
  • The extension will raise an estimated $480 million
  • If approved, this extension will go into effect on January 1, 2017 for a 15-year term.
  • Vote on August 26, 2014.

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.
