DELAND – After a successful eastside School Choice Fair with close to 2,000 attendees, Volusia County Schools will host its westside School Choice Fair on Tuesday, November 30, from 5:30 to 7 p.m. at the Sanborn Activity Center in DeLand. The School Choice Fair was created to inform parents of their K-12 school choice options. Volusia County parents have the opportunity to learn more about the quality programs offered at district elementary, middle, and high schools, including its online program. The westside School Fair will include some information about the academies available at district high schools. However, parents can obtain more in-depth information about each high school’s programs and academies at the High School Showcase, scheduled for December 2, from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at the Ocean Center in Daytona.  

Principals, assistant principals, and staff from participating schools, along with program specialists, will be at the School Choice Fair to answer any questions about school options for the upcoming school year. Families who attend a School Choice Fair will receive priority placement in their school of choice for the 2022-2023 school year.

Aside from being informative, the School Choice Fair will be fun for families, with free entertainment, an art exhibit, door prizes, and giveaways. Admission and parking are free at both events.
