Seventy-three elementary schools in Delaware will receive funding to participate in the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Program during the 2016-2017 school year. Schools were awarded funding through a competitive application process. Each year the state receives a grant from the USDA specifically allocated for the program. The state must then select schools to participate, with priority given to schools with the highest free and reduced price enrollment.
A federal Early Head Start-Child Care Partnership grant is helping Delaware build upon the state’s record investments in high-quality early learning and raise the quality of infant and toddler care for children in low-income families. Delaware was one of only seven states to win the grant.
Delaware STEM Academy will not open this fall after its charter was revoked today. Students who had planned to attend the school will be able to enroll elsewhere. Earlier this month, the Delaware Department of Education's Charter School Accountability Committee (CSAC) recommended the revocation of charter unless the school’s board could provide sufficient information to address the committee’s concerns about its financial viability and programming. The New Castle high school was scheduled to open this fall with grades 9 and 10 with a focus on science, technology, engineering and math (STEM).
