DDOE, DuPont and Discovery Education Launch First-of-Its-Kind Partnership Supporting STEM, CTE Statewide
The Delaware Department of Education (DDOE), DuPont (NYSE: DD) and Discovery Education today announced a new, first-of-its-kind partnership that will increase student access to high-quality STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) instructional resources, as well as instructional materials and other supports to enhance career and technical education programs across the state. The three-year partnership program directly supports the Delaware Pathways initiative — an innovative effort helping students develop the academic, technical, and employability skills needed for successful, in-demand jobs across Delaware.
Secretary of Education Susan Bunting today announced more than $458,000 in federal grants to expand high school career pathway programs and to support all youth in their pursuit of college and career-readiness coursework. The statewide Delaware Pathways initiative aims to prepare all students to excel in key industries that offer good jobs in today’s economy.
Students from across the state took home honors from the BPA State Conference in Dover last week. Lists of the winners in each category for both middle and high school competitions are available.
For four Delaware high schools, the 2018-19 school year will be the launch of the NAF Academy of Business Information Management program.
