Event Details

Excellence in Education is an economic development initiative for Kent County, Delaware to:

• Serve as a guide to Kent County’s schools to highlight the collective attributes and innovative achievements of each of them while stressing the important role our schools play in workforce and economic development.

• Support speciļ¬c programs in our local schools and community organizations that focus on workforce and economic development with a grant program funded by local businesses and organizations.

• Recognize and support an interaction between the schools and community organizations, and the businesses that rely on them for workforce and economic development.
