    New School Start Times for 2019-2020 School Year​​

    The Volusia County School board voted to change school start times for next year.
    • Elementary will be 7:50 a.m. - 2:30 p.m.,
    • Middle will be 9:30 a.m. - 4:15 p.m.,
    • High School will be 8:30 a.m. - 3:30 p.m.

    These times will be effective in August 2019, for the start of the ​2019-20 school year. The School Board developed this schedule by modifying the start time committee's option #1 after reviewing the results of the survey. Some options being considered are morning tutoring and offering more clubs for middle schools to help families transition to the later start time.
