The Delaware Department of Education and the State Board of Education are a disgrace!

Delaware Department of Education playing a shell game October 10, 2015 · by Sen. David G. Lawson

Last spring, the Delaware Department of Education asked for $7.5 million to, among other things, continue funding 10 Race to the Top positions. The Joint Finance Committee was quite clear on the subject when we told DOE, “No.” We gave them $3.75 million as direct pass-through money to go to programs in schools and very clearly said the funds were not for salaries.

* The salaries of the positions in question:

Assessment, Accountability, Performance and Evaluation Branch
Chief Officer for the Branch: $134,337
Director, Office of Assessment: $110,551
Chief Performance Officer, Office of Performance Management: $116,419
Deputy Officer, Office of Performance Management: $85,020
Teacher and Leader Effectiveness Branch
Chief Officer for the Branch: $134,337
Director, Educator Effectiveness and Talent Management: $110,551
Deputy Officer, Talent Recruitment and Acquisition: $99,750
Chief of Staff for the Branch: $116,000
