DELAND— The School District of Volusia County is in the process of gathering input from all stakeholders for budget saving ideas and suggestions. During the last five fiscal years, Volusia County Schools lost more than $80 million in state funding and made extensive budget reductions. The school district is now facing a minimum $25 million deficit for 2013-14.
As part of the budget process, the school district is inviting parents, students, employees and community members to send us their best ideas to save money. All responses will be provided to school board members and the superintendent for review in preparation for budget workshops, which will be scheduled in February after the election of the District 2 school board member.
