Governor’s Weekly Message Transcript: Delaware’s Strategic Fund: Supporting Job Creation & Business Growth
Governor Markell highlights the positive economic impact of Delaware’s Strategic Fund, which provides customized financial assistance to companies that consider locating or expanding in Delaware.
Governor Jack Markell announced today that the “Improving Employment Opportunities for People with Disabilities Workgroup,” a team of employees from seven agencies focused on increasing the hiring and retention of people with disabilities, is the 2014 recipient of the Governor’s Team Excellence Award.
Governor Markell explains the importance of identifying unmet student needs and developing a comprehensive plan that addresses all schools in Delaware. “Amazing schools and programs across the state are offering diverse and innovative opportunities to meet individual needs, whether it’s the science and math focus at Conrad Schools of Science, the college prep courses at Mount Pleasant, the
programs to serve high-need students at EastSide Charter, or the robust career and technical training at Vo Tech schools in each county,” said Governor Markell.
All students deserve educational opportunities that prepare them to thrive in an increasingly competitive economy. For some, that means curriculum based on science and math, special preparation for careers in manufacturing or information technology, or dual language programs.
