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.
