Delaware's Final ESSA State Plan
"We are proud of the strong gains Delaware’s public schools have made in recent years as graduation rates and academic proficiency levels have increased and opportunity gaps have started to close. Our teachers, school and district leaders, students, families and community partners have led this change. The efforts and innovations reflected in our ESSA plan are the result of months of extensive consultation and meaningful engagement with our community.
The Delaware Department of Education has received more than 1,000 comments submitted through online surveys, a dedicated ESSA email address, a Governor’s ESSA Advisory Committee, discussion groups and community conversations. The valuable input received was critical to Delaware’s plan development process."
-Susan S. Bunting, Secretary of Education
