Preventing Summer Learning Loss

Summer rightfully should be a time for students to unwind and have fun.  However, unwinding and having fun can still be a part of activities that keep their academic skills sharp and prevent the potential for "summer learning loss."  Here is a lengthy list of tips, strategies, and suggested activities to keep your child's mind fresh, engaged, and ready to learn... while having fun at the same time!

Step Increases & FY 2016 Budget Update

DSEA wants to thank our members for their advocacy regarding step increases.  Step increases are vital, giving Delaware a competitive advantage in recruiting and retaining qualified educators. 

Vision to Learn Program

This issue of untreated poor eyesight disproportionately affects children in low-income communities because of cost and the lack of access.  This is a problem that a new program in Delaware, called Vision to Learn, seeks to end by bringing doctors and glasses directly to schools.

"Time to Teach, Time to Learn" Campaign
