Welcome New Teachers!

We are glad you are here and excited to welcome you to our Volusia County Schools family!

All new teachers to Volusia County will participate in the VCS New Teacher Academy (NTA). Per the instructional contract, a new teacher is defined as anyone who is new to teaching and/or new to our school district. The VCS New Teacher Academy includes professional learning opportunities covering the following topics: classroom management, Danielson’s Framework for Teaching, state standards/curriculum, and ethics.  In addition, participants in the NTA will be able to engage in job-embedded professional learning through our Showcase Classrooms component. The Showcase Classrooms component allows new teachers to visit veteran teachers’ classrooms to be see best practices in action! The NTA also provides monthly wellness opportunities through Our Best Self component that focuses on finding work-life balance.

All new teachers to Volusia County will be supported by district and school-based induction teams on their campus. At school, new teachers will be assigned a mentor and will receive instructional support from the academic coach(es) on campus throughout the school year.

Throughout this program, new teachers will have the opportunity to connect with district curriculum/department leads and network with other new teachers throughout the district. VCS offers differentiated programs for speech clinicians, school counselors, social workers, school psychologists and media specialists.

In addition to the VCS New Teacher Academy, new teachers will have the opportunity to participate in various district and school-based learning opportunities throughout the year.
