Welcome, new teachers!

This week, we welcomed 100 new members of our instructional staff to the SDIRC! To kick off this two-day event at SGMS, new teachers were greeted by our Superintendent, administrators, SRHS cheerleaders, breakfast, and a special day of introductions and information dedicated just to them! Our SDIRC teachers' union and other vendors were available to share information and help our new teachers get off to a great start. Seasoned teachers collected supplies to offer new teachers to use in their classroom, and teachers who were new to the district, last year, held a "New Teacher Panel" to answer questions from our newest employees. Welcome, everyone! We are so happy to have you on our team!

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.
