DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (Aug. 19, 2019) – The Daytona State College District Board of Trustees had a full agenda when they met Thursday, August 15, 2019, at the New Smyrna Beach/Edgewater Campus. One item of business brought before the board was the formal partnership between the College and the new Southeast Volusia School of Science & Technology (SEV Sci-Tech).image of rendering Southeast Volusia School of Science & Technology at DSC's New Smyrna Beach/Edgewater Campus

The new middle and high charter school will focus on higher education and careers in science, technology and mathematics, preparing students for a variety of careers and advanced higher education. Representatives from SEV Sci-Tech attended the meeting to show their support for the plan which involves a 51-year land lease from DSC on the New Smyrna Beach/Edgewater Campus.

The charter school is beginning the permitting and surveying process with a goal to open as early as fall 2020. Based on the presentation, positive feedback from the community and stakeholders, and the tremendous impact this holds for the campus and region for future generations, the DSC trustees approved the land-lease agreement unanimously.

"We're very excited for this opportunity, and bringing future Daytona State students here with high-tech dual enrollment opportunities I think will be a win-win," said Dr. Tom LoBasso, DSC President. Everyone agreed that this shared vision will help students expand their educational opportunities while exploring various STEM-related career pathways. "Today's vote to move forward represents the unlimited potential for students in this community as well as those businesses and industries who look to Daytona State College as the leader in high-tech, high-skilled education."
