    The Delaware City Schools Board of Education approved initial plans to begin the 2020-2021 school year. While information and conditions may change over the next few weeks, we felt it was important to develop a plan so our families and staff can adequately prepare. We recognize that the options provided will be difficult for some families, but please know we have tried to be thoughtful and intentional to create the best possible plan for our students, teachers and staff. The district will continually evaluate the public health conditions and if those conditions improve or worsen, we will adjust our instruction model accordingly. It remains our goal to have students in our buildings as much as possible, but we will also be prepared to teach in a completely online environment if necessary.

    With information we have today, Delaware City Schools’ plan is to begin the school year with two learning options for our students in kindergarten-12th grade. Our preschool students with disabilities can maintain their existing preschool schedule. Additional options will be provided for preschool students with disabilities whose families choose not to have their child attend in-person. Students in kindergarten-12th grade may choose to attend school on a 3 day/2 day rotating blended learning schedule or families may elect to enroll in the Delaware City Schools Online Academy for a full-time at-home learning experience. Additional details of each plan can be found here. Our staff will continue to refine these plans and more detailed information will be provided closer to our school start date. All students will automatically be enrolled in the blended learning option unless opted in to the DCS online academy by July 24.
