The Delaware Department of Education today launched its Summer of Opportunity website at de.gov/summerlearning, a searchable database to help families find school- and community-based learning opportunities for their children this summer.
Students from 16 schools represented the First State at the National Virtual Technology Student Association (TSA) conference in June. Finalists competed in events such as computer-aided design; chapter team; coding; cybersecurity, debating technological issues; essays on technology; forensic technology; foundations of information technology; junior solar sprint; leadership strategies; tech bowl; on demand video; video game design; website design and more. The virtual conference included nearly 7,000 individuals from across the United States participating in advanced Science, Technology, Engineering, Math (STEM); leadership; and service-focused events.
Secretary of Education Susan Bunting recognized 17 schools from across the state for their students’ academic achievement today.
Hundreds of children, families, business and community leaders will come together throughout the state and nation Thursday at Lights On Afterschool events to celebrate the achievements of afterschool students and draw attention to the need for more afterschool programs to serve children nationwide who are unsupervised and at risk each weekday afternoon.
Three Delaware schools are among the 362 schools that U.S. Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos recognized today as National Blue Ribbon Schools for 2019. The recognition is based on a school’s overall academic performance or progress in closing achievement gaps among student subgroups.
