It was revealed yesterday that the Christina School District and the Delaware Department of Education finally reached a signed agreement over the eighteen month priority school battle. As shown below, Delaware Secretary of Education Dr. Steven Godowsky formally wrote a letter to the State Board of Education indicating this. As one of their conditional approvals for the Wilmington Education Improvement Commission redistricting plan, the State Board can no longer complain about this in their meetings.
Christina School District citizens face a referendum in 13 days. I really like a lot of what I’m seeing from the district in terms of what they have planned for the money raised from the referendum. Brian Stephan wrote an excellent article on Delaware Liberal earlier this morning about what the district will allocate the funds for and I like a lot of their ideas.
In the meantime, see the letter that ends the long DOE-State Board-Christina battle over three schools. Is this the same agreement from a year ago?

Your last sentence brings up an interesting point.
We don’t know.
last year’s agreement is posted on Christina’s board docs site. One of the March Meetings in 2015. I imagine that the implementation timelines will be different than in stated in March 15 version.
