As previously reported, Volusia County Schools delayed the start for the 2020-2021 school year from August 17 to August 31, along with approving the district’s innovative re-opening plan with safety measures in place, as well as options, for both families and teachers.
As such, VCS has opened a Pre-registration Form survey Wednesday and will run until 11:45 p.m., Tuesday, July 28.
This form will allow parents to choose which option they are more comfortable with for their students at the fast-approaching start of the new school year. A form should be filled out for EACH student, and student’s Alpha Code will need to be entered.
The three learning options are:
Traditional Classroom Setting (as directed by Florida Department of Education) with Health & Safety Guidelines –
Students attend school five days a week, as directed by the Florida Department of Education, with health and safety guidelines in place.
Volusia Live (real-time live streaming) with Student's School of Enrollment (pending approval of FLDOE) –
This option is pending approval by the Florida Department of Education. Students will remain at home but follow the same daily class schedule as their classmates who are in traditional school. Students will participate in classroom instruction by logging in on a device and engaging with their teacher and classmates virtually, by using platforms such as Zoom or Teams (real-time live streaming). These students are expected to log in and out on time for class every day. They are also expected to engage in classroom activities. Attendance will be taken.
Enhanced Volusia Online Learning –
This is an at-your-own pace, a virtual option that has been available to VCS students for years. Volusia County teachers provide instruction in flexible formats. There is not a set schedule. Extra-curricular activities and clubs are available. Enrollment ends July 31, 2020. Please visit
for more information.
A virtual parent information session has also been scheduled for 8 a.m., and 4:30 p.m, for July 23, 24, and 27. Parents are being encouraged to attend these orientations for each level of students (Elementary, Middle, High). Access to these sessions is in the process of being added to the reopening website at www.vcsedu.org.
Pre-registration Forms can be found on the Volusia County School’s website.
