20 - 19 - 06-28-06 SAELP presentation.ppt Vision 2015 Transforming Delawares Education System We will create the best public educational system in the world for all Delaware studentsone that provides a customized learning experience that reflects the uniqueness of every child and enables all students to reach their true potential. We will measure our progress annually toward transformation with the following aspirational goals: All students graduate from high schooland are prepared for success at college and work. All children have access to high quality early child care and education. Delaware tops the nation on NAEP and tops the world on comparable international measures. Achievement gaps in academic performance and graduation rates are eliminated across racial / ethnic / income groups. Delaware employers and higher education institutions report that candidates with a Delaware diploma are well-prepared and preferred over candidates from other states. All Delaware educators believe that they are part of a culture of continuous improvement. Delaware is a state of choice for people who seek high-quality public education. OUR VISION STATEMENT AND DESIRED OUTCOMES

21 - 20 - 06-28-06 SAELP presentation.ppt Vision 2015 Transforming Delawares Education System THE VISION 2015 CORE ELEMENTS To transform Delawares education system to become world-class, we will: 1.Set our sights high. We will raise our standards so that Delaware students can compete with the best in the world. 2.Invest earlier and smarter. To reach these standards, we will provide best-in-class early childhood education and give all students the gift of extra academic time. 3.Create incentives to attract and keep the best and brightest teachers in our classrooms. Teachers will receive the support they need to teach all students well and have the chance to advance their careers in multiple ways. 4.Expect and reward excellence. To move from a compliance-driven culture to one driven by results, we will create a management and accountability system that gives principals more control over hiring, firing and spending in their own schools…and that uses technology to help monitor and hold educators responsible for continuous gains in student achievement. 5.Encourage innovation and choice. Because one size does not fit all, we will create a more dynamic system that gives middle and high school students much more choice of schools and courses that are relevant, rigorous and engaging. 6.Create a funding and oversight system that is simple and equitable. To ensure that resources directly support our educational priorities, we will create a student funding system that is easily tracked and tied to individual student needs.
