Growth Management

School concurrency laws have been enacted to require that new development pay for its share of necessary traditional K-12 public school facilities. School concurrency acts as the warning system to the school district of the imminent impact associated with new residential development.

There a two main types of review: Adequate Capacity Reviews and School Concurrency Reviews.

School Concurrency Review Application

Volusia County Charter Amendment Section 206 - Adequate Capacity Review

Volusia County voter approval of the School Planning Charter Amendment provides that any county or municipal comprehensive plan amendment or rezoning allow increased residential density may become effective only if adequate public schools can be timely planned and constructed to serve the projected increase in student population. This became effective September 30, 2007.

School Concurren​​cy Review

Legislation enacted by the 2005 Florida Legislature mandates local governments and school boards adopt a school concurrency system. School concurrency ensures coordination between local governments and school boards in planning and permitting developments that affect school capacity. State law in Florida currently mandates certain types of concurrency. These include traffic (roads), potable water, sanitary sewer, drainage, solid waste and parks. School concurrency was added in June 2005 and became effective here February 1, 2008.

The Interlocal Agreement  for public school planning directs this coordination between the district and the local governments, providing for the acceptable Level of Services (LOS) for schools, when concurrency mitigation is required, and the Public School Elements in local comprehensive plans.
