Volusia County School-Budget Mess

The budget mess continues to affect our schools. Here is some more information on what who you need to write too along with other ways to help.


Volusia Legislative Delegation and State Policy Makers - these people MUST hear from us, and realize that these cuts to our children's education are not acceptable.

Mid Year Cuts - this is what has been cut RIGHT now from your schools. Pay particular attention to page 3 - textbooks, sports and substitutes. These are ridiculous.

Next Years Potential Cuts - educational programs, athletics, ridiculous, ridiculous!

Be informed! Take action!

Here is some information if you want to donate to keep JV Sports for this year.


Academic Competitions and Junior Varsity Sports were eliminated from the budget mid-year due to the funding crisis. Many community members indicated they would be willing to donate money in order to save the programs for the 2008-09 school year.

An Ad Hoc Community Cadre, coordinated by Nancy Holman, was formed to spearhead the effort to raise $100,000.

Checks should be made payable to Volusia County Schools with a notation for Academic/JV Sports Support Fund.

Send checks to:

Bertie Trawick, Director of Finance
Volusia County Schools
200 North Clara Avenue
DeLand, FL 32720

Zookie, thanks for the constructive criticism, sadly, sometimes I am in a hurry and don't proofread as I should. I will try and improve in this area.

I was always taught when I provide negative feedback to also find something positive to say. Other than my obvious errors do you agree or like any of my posts?

Thanks for reading!
