Informing all Delawareans about the changing education standards and assessments

What Is DelExcels?

DelExcels is a coalition between the Delaware Department of Education, Delaware State Education Association, Delaware Parent Teacher Association and Rodel Foundation of Delaware. This joint effort aims to inform all Delawareans about the changing education standards and assessments in our state. We believe that higher standards for our children will provide all students with the knowledge and skills they need to succeed in the college or careers of their choosing.
