                                        WHAT ARE WE DOING NOW?


         Currently, the Vision 2015 team is working on developing a “blueprint”
         plan...
                   vision for Delaware’s public education
         ...laying out a
         system in 2015
         ...and the               steps we must take together to get there

         This plan...

         ...is intended to shape the            education policy agenda in
         Delaware for the next decade

                       OUR VISION STATEMENT AND DESIRED OUTCOMES

              “We will create the best public educational system in the world for all Delaware
               students—one 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 school—and 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.

                                  THE VISION 2015 CORE ELEMENTS

 To transform Delaware’s 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.
