Rumor Control

​​​​​​​​​​Our goal is to make sure our parents, students, sta​ff and community members have accurate information. Rumors spread more quickly than ever in the era of social media. Our way to combat misinformation is to provide explanations to ​rumors that are spreading throughout the district. ​If you he​​ar rumors in the community that you believe should be addressed, please email Community Information Services​​​​.

​​​​​​​​​​​R​umor: Will students have to wear uniforms for the 2017-18 school year?​

School uniforms will be required in the 2017-2018 school year. The policy was amended to allow three district-wide colors for polos and oxford shirts: white, gray and black. Schools may select up to two additional school colors for the collared shirts. Complete guidelines can be found in School Board Policy 217.​

Rumor: Deltona Middle School is no longer on the list for being replaced.

The replacement of Deltona Middle is on the approved project list​. The school will be replaced using funds from the Half-Cent Sales Tax Extension. Unfortunately, everything can't be built at the same time. Projects will be completed over the life of the 15-year sales tax, which is effective from January 1, 2017 to December 31, 2031.

Rumor: Volunteers have to renew their applications every five years.

​Volunteer applications no longer need to be renewed. They are now available online​ and only need to be completed once. A photo ID must be scanned prior to the application's approval. A background check is conducted through the Raptor Management System every time a volunteer signs in at a school site.​​​
