For Districts and Charters
Welcome to the State of Delaware education resource page for school administrators working with Social Studies Curriculum. This site is maintained by Delaware's Standards and Instruction workgroup and provides superintendents, principals, curriculum directors, counselors and other personnel with information and resources about Social Studies standards and instruction.
Delaware operates with the knowledge that all children are successful in the classroom and beyond when high expectations exist alongside appropriate supports. Our goal is to assist districts and charter schools throughout Delaware in their mission to prepare students for their college and career goals after high-school.
