Volusia County Schools
At-home, core class instruction (ELA, math, science and social studies) will begin Monday, March 30 for all students (VPK through 12 grade.) The Instructional Continuity Plan can be reviewed at https://www.vcsedu.org/icp. Additionally, students should complete an Instructional Continuity Log (ICL) for each non-core class. The ICL offers a few examples of continued learning in those content areas. Unless your teacher has communicated a different plan for learning, you will use this log through April 10. Please record at least one hour per week for each of your non-core classes (90 minutes per week for PE). The ICL and its instructions are accessible through the student's V-Portal. A printed copy will be available at your school site if needed. Please send the completed document to your teacher by Friday, April 3, and again on Friday, April 10, unless alternative plans were communicated to you by your teacher.

Volusia County Schools has also compiled a list of frequently asked questions, which can be found at https://www.vcsedu.org/urgent-information/ask-question.

    Per a public health advisory issued by State Surgeon General Scott A. Rivkees, all business owners, supervisors, managers and others in charge of conducting business in the state of Florida should allow telework of employees to the extent that can be accomplished without significantly disrupting the ability to conduct business. Employers should make every effort to reduce the onsite workforce to 50% capacity, where possible, to the extent that reduction can be accomplished without significantly disrupting the ability to conduct business.
