Dr. Scott Fritz, Superintendent for Volusia County Schools, returned to his position Monday, February 1, following a medical leave. Dr. Fritz is ready to lead Volusia County Schools for the second half of the 2020-2021 school year and beyond, according to a release.
Fritz joined VCS back in December of 2019, serving as Superintendent until last July when he received a cancer diagnosis. After receiving treatment, Dr. Fritz has fully recovered from his diagnosis.
According to a release put out by the district, one of his priorities will be the presentation of a new Strategic Plan to the School Board this month. The new plan’s goals focus on student learning and social-emotional health to ensure every student reaches his or her full potential. Metrics are tied to each goal, and development will be monitored to drive improvement.
“This has been an unusual year, but we are focused on students and their success and well-being despite those challenges,” Fritz said. “We must be strategic in creating a culture that engages all students in high levels of learning every day. Our journey has already begun, but there is more we can and will do to increase achievement for all our children.”
Fritz said he is grateful to his colleagues and community for their support during his illness.
“I am indebted to Deputy Superintendent Dr. Carmen Balgobin for her leadership during my leave, and thankful to the School Board for guiding us so effectively through this challenging year,” he said. “I am honored to lead this great school district and am happy to be back at work alongside the thousands of dedicated professionals who serve the children and families of our county.”
