Delaware Schools Persisting Through Covid-19 Pandemic

Governor Carney ordered all Delaware schools to remain closed through the remainder of the schoolyear to help fight the spread of COVID-19. Visit the state’s COVID-19 resource pages (schools and universities) for the most up-to-date and accurate state-level guidance for families, teachers, schools, and childcare programs, locations for free Wi-Fi, and more.

We are concerned about the inequities for children who are homeless, do not have adults who can help them learn remotely, who speak a language other than English, and who do not have access to basic needs or the internet during this time. The challenges are even greater when these children don’t have the stability and resources schools provide. We hope our recently completed community survey will help identify these needs and connect resources with those that need them.

 

The Delaware Campaign for Achievement Now has released a new database that compiles and compares district and charter school plans for distance learning during school closures. Click here to access the Delaware Distance Learning Plan Database.

 

In spite of the crisis and fragility of many students we serve, here is a look at what’s underway that gives us hope—and how Delawareans’ priorities for education are made even more urgent and clear by this crisis.

 

We have heroes among us—and we see promising practices and signs of hope around us.
