SAC Climate SurveyVolusia County Schools is engaged in an ongoing continuous improvement process, of which all stakeholders are a part. The district will be sending you an invitation to participate in the online survey between the dates of March 29th – May 28th as one method of reaching all stakeholders.
Surveys are a means to systematically engage all our stakeholders in two-way communication. They provide school leaders and teachers a lens into the thinking and perceptions of our stakeholders. Careful analysis of the results helps us to understand our areas of strength and effectiveness, as well as those areas that might need improvement. These survey results will enable our school leaders to measure stakeholders' attitudes and help target improvement strategies focused on student achievement, as well as school and district effectiveness. Taking the survey will also provide a means for stakeholders to learn about what parents and students should be looking for in a high quality school system. Your cooperation and support in completing the surveys will be greatly appreciated.

Emergency Evacuation Information
Parents Have a Key Role in Emergency ResponseWhile we hope that every school day runs smoothly, an emergency situation can occur at any given time. It is important that we follow school and district policies, procedures and guidelines to ensure the safety of our students and staff.
In the event that our school becomes unsafe and we have to evacuate our campus we have an agreement with David Hinson Middle School as our primary evacuation site and Father Lopez High School as the secondary evacuation site. Our media staging area is located at the intersection of Thornberry Branch Lane and Tournament Drive.
Connect Ed phone messages and local media will be great sources of current information for families. Stay tuned to local news channels and be sure to keep your phone numbers current with school officials so that you know exactly what is going on if we were in an emergency situation.
During and following an emergency situation, school and district officials must act quickly and follow established emergency protocols to safeguard students and staff, secure schools, and communicate accurate information in a timely manner. Parents can assist greatly by helping with preparation before the emergency.
