Governor’s Weekly Message: Creating Greater Opportunities for Students to Reach Their Potential

Wilmington – In his weekly message, Governor Markell discusses legislation signed this week to transform Wilmington schools. 

“Legislation I signed this past week paves the way for a careful process to redraw lines and reduce the number of school districts in Wilmington,” said Governor Markell. “The laws follow recommendations of the Wilmington Education Advisory Committee I established last year to give the community a stronger voice in the future of their schools. By seizing this moment to transform Wilmington’s schools, we will create greater opportunities for students and families to reach their potential – and that will keep Delaware moving forward.”

Every week, the Governor’s office releases a new Weekly Message in video, audio, and transcript form. The message is available on:
