The State of Delaware Department of Education publishes the following regarding the Delaware Teacher of the Year program on their website:

Purpose:

The classroom teacher is the backbone of the American educational system. No one person has a greater impact on the education of a child than does the teacher who creates the primary learning and instructional environment. It is the mission of the Delaware Teacher of the Year Program to recognize and honor the contributions of the Delaware classroom teacher.

Mission Statement:

The Delaware State Teacher of the Year Program is a vocal community of award-winning educators who represent exemplary teaching and serve as spokespersons and ambassadors for the profession. The DSTOY Program recognizes excellence in education and expresses appreciation for the many outstanding teachers in Delaware who serve as an inspiration to teachers, students, and community members while providing a representative to serve as the profession’s advocate throughout the year.

Delcastle Teacher of the Year

The nomination window for 2019-2020 Delcastle Teacher of the Year begins February 11th and ends February 22nd.

Respect Campaign 2019

Delcastle is starting our 3rd annual Respect campaign (formerly called Spread the Word) for Special Olympics Delaware. We are pledging to use the R- word, RESPECT. We all know that our language affects our attitudes. Attitudes impact our actions. We are promoting making friends and being kind.

How Can Students and Families Participate?

The Unified Club will be selling t-shirts during all lunches from February 7th through the 15th.  Shirts are $6.00 and are navy blue 100% heavy cotton.  They are available in the following sizes: 

Adult: S, M, L, XL, 2X, 3X

-and-

Youth: Y-SM, Y-MD, Y-LG

You can fill out this linked Order Form and send it to school.  Payments must be cash or cashier checks only.  Students can submit orders to staff working the tables at lunches or in sealed envelopes marked to the attention of Ms. Humphrey.  In order for the school to submit the whole order, students and families must submit individual orders by February 15th.  Once the shirts arrive, we will deliver them with a slip of paper that will have a reminder of what day to wear your shirt (the National Day is 3/6/19).

This year we are trying to make it clear within our building and our district that we nurture an environment where everyone is welcome and valued. We are accepting orders from all staff, students, families, and community partners.  We encourage everyone to make their pledge and sign our banner, which we will display in the lunchroom on Wednesday, March 6th.

December 17, 2018

Victoria C. Gehrt, Superintendent of the New Castle County Vocational-Technical School District since 2011, has announced her plan to retire effective July 1, 2019, after 30 years of service to the school district and a total of 48 years as a Delaware and Pennsylvania educator.

Additionally, the district also operates an adult and alternative education division serving approximately 2,000 students.

On behalf of the NCC Vo-Tech Board of Education, I first want to thank Dr. Gehrt for her leadership and years of service and I also want to thank you for your continued support of our Career and Technical Programs, our schools, and must importantly, our students. Your commitment helps to ensure that high quality and effective educational programs are provided for all students, and we could not do it without you.

In that spirit of partnership, the NCCVT school board is soliciting input as we begin the search for the next school district superintendent. The Board of Education would like to hear your ideas about skills and attributes you think are important as we review potential candidates for the superintendent’s position.
