College-level tutoring program TeenSHARP is opening its regional headquarters in Wilmington Thursday. TeenSHARP seeks out promising students of color to help prepare them for higher education during Saturday class sessions at the University of Delaware.
As a new school year begins, Delaware’s Department of Education has a new arm dedicated to high-needs Wilmington schools. It’s called the Department of Innovation and Improvement, and former Brandywine School District assistant superintendent Dorrell Green is leading it.
Delaware kids living in poverty have a harder time getting through school. That’s why the state has created basic needs closets that students in 45 schools will be able to use. The closets will have free hygiene products, school supplies and clothes.
