sdirc teachers and staff members return to school

During the week of August 6th-10th, SDIRC teachers returned to their classrooms to prepare to welcome their students back to school. Along with creating a welcoming environment for incoming students, teachers attended professional development, participated in team-building exercises, had grade-level meetings, and attended several school planning meetings...It looks like the may have enjoyed themselves, as well! Take a look at a few of our schools pictured below. We are so excited to see our students' faces on Monday, August 13th!

SDIRC Orientation

This past week was orientation week for SDIRC schools. It was wonderful to meet our new students and see familiar faces, once again. Below are just a few of the pictures from the orientation nights that took place at each of our schools.

Treasure Coast Technical College Ribbon Cutting Ceremony

The Treasure Coast Technical College Ribbon Cutting Ceremony was a success! Over 100 people from all over the county attended the program and were able to tour the campus. Teachers were available in their classrooms to show our guests around and answer questions. Our new industrial trades building was swarming with guests who were anxious to learn about virtual welding and see the new construction and welding bays; some of them even tried their hand at virtual welding! Thank you, to our community for all of your support in this endeavor! We are excited to be able to offer this educational opportunity to Indian River County.

SDIRC Prepares to Kick-off the Vero Beach Centennial Celebration

The official kick-off to the Centennial Celebration will be on October 26, 2018, at the Vero Beach High School Half-time Tribute Show. The SDIRC is excited to participate in the Centennial events that honor the amazing city of Vero Beach!

District News

A decision was made at the July 24th Board meeting to delay the enforcement of an updated dress code until the 2019-2020 school year.

A decision was made at the July 24th Board meeting to delay the enforcement of an updated dress code until the 2019-2020 school year. Previously, at a June Board meeting, the Board approved an updated dress code, that would apply to three district schools: Sebastian River Middle School, Sebastian River High School, and Vero Beach High School. The students and families of our school district expressed concerns with the financial burden the changes would put on families who had already purchased clothing for the school year. In response to the concerns communicated by our school families, our School Board decided to delay the enforcement of an updated dress code until the 2019-2020 school year. Please click the link below for information clarifying our district dress code.
