Our Mission: 

Through the use of technology, Volusia County Schools strengthens student learning and fosters creativity, collaboration, and communication beyond the classrooms.

Our Vision:   

Students will be engaged in a stimulating academic environment with challenging student-centered experiences that result in creative expression and meaningful collaboration that will prepare them to excel in a technology-rich, global environment.  

  • We accomplish this by shifting the instructional practices of teachers to integrate technology consistently and effectively into their instructional practices.
  • We support staff with timely professional development that connects technology with learning, as well as provide access to a full range of the latest and relative tools.
