IN PARTNERSHIP WITH

Progress is Movement Towards a Destination

Movement is the result of an action. It’s a physical response to our effort. But progress is different. Progress is movement towards a destination. It’s movement with purpose.

Every day we do things in the community to create movement. But do these efforts lead to progress?

On Friday, September 30th, we’re going to start a conversation about progress. Join us as key leaders come together to discuss the state of education in The First State, and what we need to do to ensure we see progress for all our students across the state.

Who’s Taking the Stage?

For this event, we are fortunate to have some of Delaware’s most influential leaders in the areas of education, teacher recruitment, and student outcomes.

Dr. Vilicia Cade - Superintendant, Capital School District
