The State of Delaware Department of Education publishes the following regarding the Delaware Teacher of the Year program on their website:
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.
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.
The nomination window for 2019-2020 Delcastle Teacher of the Year begins February 11th and ends February 22nd. Students, staff, parents, community members, and business partners are all welcome and encouraged to nominate a teacher with whom they have had positive experiences. Individuals who would like to nominate staff members can do so via this form.

A Message from
Yvette Santiago, President
New Castle County Vocational-Technical School District Board of Education
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.
The school district operates four comprehensive Career and Technical high schools in New Castle County – Delcastle Technical High School, Hodgson Vo-Tech High School, Howard High School of Technology, and St. Georges Technical High School, with a total enrollment of 4,700 students in grades 9 – 12. 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.
Please send comments to firstname.lastname@example.org or mail directly to:

The Delcastle PTA has two events availble for all Delcastle families and community members.
The Delcastle PTA has partnered with all Delaware locations of Five Below for a fundraising event. The event is currently running and ends December 1st. If you print the linked flyer and bring it with you to any Delaware Five Below, 10% of the toal dollars spent will be donated back to Delcaste PTA. This is a great way to simultaneously shop and give back!
The Delcastle PTA is also sponsoring a service project to support the Delaware Chapter of The Pajama Program. This program provides new pajamas to kids who have been abandoned, abused, or neglected and are waiting and hoping to be adopted. The majority of these kids are in group homes, shelters, or other temporary housing.
To support this group, the Delcastle PTA is collecting NEW pajamas and NEW books for high school aged kids.
Parents, students, and community members can take their donations to the Student Activities (SAC) office through Friday, December 14th.
