Security at school campuses is a top priority throughout the nation and here in Volusia County.

Hurricane Make-Up Days

For Immediate Release

September 13, 2019

Hurricane Make-Up Days

DELAND —After a detailed analysis of all instructional minutes, it has been determined that VCS is able to absorb the lost time of the three Hurricane days within the existing schedule.

Some scheduling adjustments will have to be made to a few schools, but those will not impact the start and stop times of the school day or bus schedules.

If there are any future storm events that cause the loss of instructional time, the designated November days (November 25 and November 26) will be used to make-up the minutes, if the event occurs prior to those dates.

If an event should occur after November, then other actions would be considered. Once again, the instructional minutes from the three Hurricane days will be absorbed into the existing school calendar with no district wide changes to the standard operating procedures now in place.

Volusia County Schools Participating in Fortify Florida Program

Volusia County Schools is now participating in a state mandated program called Fortify Florida. Any student, educator, parent or member of the public can report school safety concerns directly to law enforcement and school administrators anonymously and easily through the FortifyFL app or www.getfortifyfl.com.

"The release of this anonymous reporting system will assist us in helping keep our campuses safe," said chief operating officer Greg Akin. "It gives everyone an avenue to assist us in gathering critical information to prevent unsafe behaviors on our campuses."

The app, which is available for download on Apple and Android mobile devices, is critical to ensuring all Florida schools are safe environments where students and educators can experience and share the joy of learning without fear.
