An elementary special education teacher from the Seaford School District is Delaware’s 2019 State Teacher of the Year. Governor John Carney made the announcement tonight at the annual banquet honoring the 20 district and charter teachers of the year at Dover Downs Hotel and Conference Center in Dover.
Delaware has won a $10.4 million federal grant to strengthen the state’s charter school system, including improved collaboration with other public schools. Funds from the U.S. Department of Education’s Charter School Program will be distributed over four years.
Three Delaware schools are among the schools that U.S. Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos recognized today as National Blue Ribbon Schools for 2018. The recognition is based on a school’s overall academic performance or progress in closing achievement gaps among student subgroups.
