Vision Coalition

The Vision Coalition of Delaware is a public-private partnership composed of a broad range of Delawareans who work together to improve Delaware public education.

The coalition’s leadership developed the Vision 2015 plan in 2006. Ten years later, with Delaware moving on more than 75 percent of the recommendations from that plan, the Vision Coalition collaborated with Delawareans to develop a new 10-year plan.

Starting in January 2014, 4,000 Delawareans shared their ideas, perspectives, and opinions during the plan development process. The result is Student Success 2025. The goal of Student Success 2025 is to prepare every Delaware student for a lifetime of success.

North Star

The North Star guides our journey on the path to excellence. It shows what students need to know, be, and do to live a lifetime of success. It serves as the beacon for our vision to improve public schools for every Delaware student.

Students will still need core academic knowledge to provide a foundation for learning, yet they will also need skills and attributes that go beyond academics.

With volumes of information available at our fingertips, the learning experience will no longer be passive—students will need to drive it. As technology plays a bigger role in the lives of our children, the ability to communicate with peers at home and globally will become increasingly important.

Coalition Leadership

The Vision Coalition is comprised of education, policy maker, business, community, and foundation stakeholders. It is an informational organization governed by the 13-member Leadership Team.

A Steering Committee was established to guide the development of a new 10-year vision for Delaware public education, resulting in the Student Success 2025 plan. During the plan development process, six Working Groups were established to draft recommendations in six core areas.
