In his March 23, 2020 letter on school closures, Governor Carney directed schools in Delaware to remain closed through May 15, 2020 and shared that districts and charters will work with their staffs to create remote instruction plans so students can continue to learn during this crisis.
Moving forward, the Delaware Department of Education (DDOE) and the Department of Technology and Information (DTI) will support schools in the planning and preparation related to models and methods of instructional delivery and, to the extent possible, the delivery of social and related services.
