DDOE Releases the New Accountability Results: Central and West Seaford Named Among Highest Rated Schools

The Delaware Department of Education (DDOE) has announced that forty-five schools across the state have earned the highest rating on Delaware’s new school accountability system, and Seaford Central Elementary School and West Seaford Elementary School are among them.

DDOE released results of the Delaware School Success Framework (DSSF) for the first time under the federal Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA). The DSSF is a statewide system for measuring how schools perform in key areas. This tool is designed to help the public understand the full spectrum of school performance and to identify each school’s needs to best support students.

“In Delaware we recognize that all schools benefit from continuous improvement -- including those that earn our highest ratings – in order to best support all students,” Secretary of Education Susan Bunting said. “The DSSF provides important information to help families, educators and community members understand how their schools are performing and in which areas they are excelling or need more support. Administrators and policy makers alike can use this information to learn from our schools’ successes and to better direct resources where they are most needed.”

Of the 213 schools that received accountability ratings, 45 scored overall as Exceeds Expectations while 79 were classified as Meets Expectations. Another 49 schools are Approaching Expectations while 40 scored at Well-Below Expectations. The overall ratings are determined based on multiple measures in which the schools also receive sub-ratings, such as student proficiency and growth in key subjects, high school graduation rates and the progress of English learners.

The DSSF results have been published under each school’s accountability tab of the school profile section of DDOE’s website. Next month the state will release new online school report cards at the state-, district- and school-levels, which will include the data from today’s release as well as more information in a revamped, more user-friendly format.
