Awareness to Action (2001-2007): In 2001, the Delaware State Board of Education assembled a group of key educational leaders to take on the challenge of addressing the state's achievement gap. A charge of the Achievement Gap Task Force was to look at and understand the achievement gap in Delaware. A primary objective was to create a measure that would minimize the fluctuations in the gap that resulted when looking at different groups of students each year. These reports are designed to make the educational community and the Delaware public more aware of achievement gap trends in Delaware schools.
