Flexibility, creativity increase student achievement

At the Delaware Work Center, academic staff have long known that not all students meet their needs or eat in a traditional classroom setting. So ten years ago, our academic team was on a mission to feed the students. They do this by offering students a unique option that allows them to receive high-quality academic instruction, which in turn strengthens collaboration, problem-solving skills, and deep peer-to-peer relationships.

Like most people, context teachers were the only “time and class model” to prepare for the school day. It is a model made in the 1890s and has not changed for over 100 years. This meant that our teaching team had to think outside the box, explore options, and build a new conceptual framework for students. As a result, our academic courses were reorganized and a mixed Friday was born.
