Volusia County Schools Announces Hurricane Makeup Plan

Superintendent Balgobin and VUE President Elizabeth Albert are pleased to announce an agreed upon plan for making up the instructional time lost due to the impacts of Hurricane Ian.  Instruction was suspended at all Volusia County Schools for 5 days due to the storm resulting in a loss of 25 hours of instruction.  In order to recover instructional time lost and recognizing that changing the calendar to have school on the previously identified make-up days may negatively impact family plans, an agreement has been reached to convert 7 early release Wednesdays to regular school days recovering 7 hours of instruction.  The identified dates are:

  • October 26
  • November 2
  • November 16
  • November 30
  • December 7
  • December 14
  • January 4

These dates will be regular school days and will not end an hour early.  Any professional learning planned on these dates will be cancelled.  A revised calendar will be made available on the VCS website.
