The Wilmington Education Improvement Commission is responsible for implementing recommendations to strengthen Wilmington public education and to provide greater support for all Delaware schools with high concentrations of low-income students and English language learners.
The work of the Commission includes the development of a plan for redistricting in New Castle County, with the Christina and Colonial School Districts no longer serving Wilmington students and the Red Clay District taking on these students. The redistricting plan also will address the resources needed for redistricting to be successful in better supporting student learning.
The forum will, provide an understanding of issues being addressed by the Wilmington Education Improvement Commission.
The Red Clay Family Resource Fair will take place this year – November 14th from 10:00 to 1:00 at John Dickinson High School.
