Volusia County, FL- The Volusia County School Board and all three employee unions are finally on the same page. Members and non-members of the Volusia Teachers Organization, the Volusia Educational Support Association and the American Federation of State, County & Municipal Employees all approved their agreements on Tuesday by large margins.
Members of the school board gave unanimous approval to the three agreements at their regular meeting on Tuesday night. The board had reached separate agreements with each of the unions in July.

The contract agreements cover the 2016-17 and 2017-18 school years.
