Changes To Exceptional Delaware: Your One-Stop Delaware Search Engine!

I’ve been wanting to do this for years!  I’ve changed this blog to include links to every single Delaware school district and charter school.  As well, I’ve added all the Delaware media (newspaper and radio) websites.  I’ve included many State of Delaware websites: Delaware DOE, Governor Carney’s website, The General Assembly, Auditor of Accounts, Attorney General and more!  Various education support groups have been added: DSEA, Delaware Charter Schools Network, Delaware School Boards Association, Delaware Association of School Administrators and more!  You will still be able to find a list of current Delaware blogs as well as closed Delaware blogs.  I cleaned up those lists to take out ones that are not current anymore (nothing written in 2018) and those that are non-functional.  In addition, I’ve added some links to what I call “transparency” sites that folks ask me about all the time.  I’ve found a ton of information over the years at many of these links and so can you!

If you are not on these list of links and would like to be added, please let me know.  I try to get everything but I’m not perfect!

I hope these changes will allow Delaware citizens, parents, students, teachers and more be able to navigate through our state easier.  These are just the first of many changes coming to Exceptional Delaware!

The Smyrna School District Zero Tolerance Pipeline Part 3: The Discipline Hearing- The Testimony of The Alleged Victim and the School Resource Officer

J was arrested for the 2nd incident in the hallway of Smyrna Middle School.  A discipline hearing was scheduled for September 7th, 2016.  J did not start school with his peers because he was still “suspended” and was awaiting potential expulsion pending the results of the discipline hearing.  After the meeting was rescheduled three times, the day of the discipline hearing came, almost four and half months after J was arrested for the 2nd incident with P.

Delaware DOE Website Gets New Look, But Is It More User-Friendly? @KilroysDelaware @ed_in_de @RCEAPrez @Apl_Jax @ecpaige @nannyfat @TNJ_malbright #netde #eduDE #Delaware

I was looking for some information, and I noticed the Delaware DOE redesigned their website.  In searching for information before, it was like trying to find a needle in a haystack to get certain reports.  I have to say, the new look works better for me.  There are more options with certain departments, and it appears they had a massive turnaround on the old website.

I still can’t find reports that have the words 148thsenate or things like that in the pdf address, like the one I found last month in regards to 1/2 the teachers getting fired in a priority school.  That reminds me….

Just because they have a new website doesn’t mean they are doing better things.  They are just making information easier to find.  They’re still the same common core standardized testing think they know how to fix schools Rodel and charter loving group they’ve always been.  Take a look:

I think they just wanted to make it easier for us education bloggers so we can write more articles faster about them!
