    • School Variance Request Process

    ​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​

    Controlled Open Enrollment ​Program

    The variance application period for SY 2016-2017 has ended. Variances to change schools during the second semester of the school year are not approved. Families new to the area need to register their children at their zoned school. Families who have moved to a different area within Volusia County and would like to stay at their current school may submit an application to remain at their currently enrolled school for the remainder of this school year.​

    Applications for SY 2017-2018 will be accepted through June 1, 2017. Families may check Parent Portal​​ for the ability to submit an application online. We hope to have an electronic application available for all schools by March 1.​​

    ​​About our School Variance Program


    Policy203_fromtheLegalWebpage.pdfSchool Board Policy 203 (Revised and Effective M​arch 29, 2011)  provides parents with the opportunity to apply for a school other than their assigned-zoned school. 
     
    Variance applications are available at all Volusia County Schools and may be picked up during regular school hours.  Early application is encouraged.   
     
    Process:
    1. Obtain variance application from any Volusia County School.
    2. Complete the variance application and have it signed by the principal/designee of the zoned school.
    3. Have the requested school principal/designee sign the application.
    4. The requested school will forward the application to the Student Assignment Office.
    5. The Student Assignment Office will process and make decisions on all variance applications.
    6. Parents will be notified by US Mail of the decision; generally toward the end of May.​​​
