    Send an email to support educator's request suspension of using test results to determine school grades:

    We encourage you to support our students, teachers and schools by reacting to the Florida Department of Education's intended use of the 2015 FSA data. Currently, it's planned use would have statewide negative impacts on students, teachers, school grades and the local economy.  State law requires that test results be used for school grades; teacher evaluation; and the placement, promotion and graduation requirements of students.  

    Send a quick two- to three-sentence email to your House and Senate representatives and request that the requirements listed above be suspended for one year and to instead use FSA data only as a benchmark for students. 

    Below are several talking points you can use:

    1. The results of the FSA should be used only as a benchmark for students and not to calculate A-F grades for public schools.
    2. The FSA is a high stakes test, and students across the state were negatively impacted by all of the problems during its administration. 
    3. Learning gains are an important component of the school grading formula.  Since the test is new and learning gains cannot be calculated, school grades will not reflect the true performance and growth of our students and our schools. A school grade without a learning gains component does not show a true picture of student achievement.

    For further information, this Daytona Beach News Journal Community Voices column gives an excellent, easy to understand explanation about why school grades should not be calculated this year: bit.ly/1LyJCuW.

    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.

    Registration Information

    • *Certified Birth Certificate

    Volunteer Information

    Volunteering at your child's school can be an exciting and fulfilling experience.  However, in the interest of protecting our students, there are certain procedures in place that must be carried out before anyone may come on campus, enter a classroom, or join a field trip. 

    A volunteer application must be turned in to the office at least six weeks before you can volunteer at our school or chaperone on field trips.  Applications must have at least six weeks time to be processed and sent to the county office for clearance.  If your name does not appear on Timbercrest's cleared volunteer list, then we are sorry to say that you may not volunteer or chaperone.  There are no exceptions!
