Delaware Teacher Careers
Delaware has been a very strong player in the Race to the federal education support program. Their application for the first round of participation was ranked first and was one of only two that was accepted. The Delaware Department of Education (DDOE) goals include graduating 90% of all high school seniors by 2013-2014, and attaining 100% success among students in meeting state math and reading standards by that same school year. Other programs recently introduced include summer AP class institutes, a college readiness program, and a college readiness exam. The DDOE has developed a plan laying out several steps to improve both teacher and student performance.
