Beginning next school year (2022-2023), Volusia County Schools will implement exciting changes to middle schools countywide. The changes will include teaming teachers with students to establish shared accountability and decision-making to support the child, going to a six-period day from a seven-period day, and bringing the fun back to middle schools!
Six class periods a day provides longer class periods for teachers to dig deeper into the academic content, allow for more time on task, and teachers can work on ongoing remediation and acceleration for students.
Teaming up teachers and staff with students will help develop deeper relationships and help cultivate a stronger sense of belonging to the schools’ climate and culture.
Volusia County Schools promises more electives and competitions to encourage school culture, mascots, and identity.
According to a release, each middle school will be sharing more about next year’s teaming initiative with parents and students throughout the spring semester. Orientation sessions will be scheduled with parents to share more regarding middle school initiatives and answer questions.
