Through leadership, teamwork and individual assistance, the Division of Human Resources will assist in the employment and retention of highly qualified personnel committed to providing opportunities for the success and growth of Volusia County students.

The School District of Volusia County does not discriminate based on race, color, national origin, sex, disability, marital status, pregnancy, political beliefs, sexual orientation, or age in its educational programs, services or activities, or in its hiring or employment practices. The district also provides equal access to its facilities to the Boy Scouts and other designated youth groups, as required by the Boy Scouts of America Equal Access Act.

Areas of Responsibility

Personnel Operations & Applications

Operations is the heart of Human Resources. All personnel applications, screening and employment verifications are processed through this department. Operations personnel are available to assist potential new hires and school district administrators with the application and hiring process.


The certification office reviews official transcripts of instructional applicants for Florida Certification eligibility. Potential applicants can meet with a certification specialist to determine their eligibility for teaching and coaching, as well as outline the coursework and tests needed to be a Volusia County instructional/coaching employee. The office also offers study material for an Florida certification exams.

Recruitment & Retention

The district employs nearly 8,000 people. It is vitally important that the district has access to a pool of qualified applicants to accommodate employment needs as they arise. The Recruitment & Retention Department markets the district to potential applicants and provides retention programs which encourage growth while maintaining a positive work environment.

Job Records

While Operations & Applications is the heart of Human Resources, Job Records is the gears to make it work. Once an individual is hired, the Job Records Department processes all bargaining and non-bargaining employee records for the Volusia County School District. All employee verification of outside experience, as well as employee verification of experience with the school district are processed through Job Records. Job Records also sets salaries for all employees with the district. Job Records personnel are always available to assist employees with any questions regarding their employment record.

Employee Performance & Leadership Development

The Office of Employee Performance & Leadership Development provides oversight and support for Employee Performance Assessment for bargaining and non-bargaining units. The department is also responsible for the development of school based administrators through the Pathways to Principalship program, and coordination of the Principal Intern Program.
