The Delaware Department of Education is making tremendous progress in helping schools, families and community groups to support students make up ground on unfinished learning due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Every K-12 student in Delaware now can use their school credentials to read required and recreational digital books in the OverDrive Education Sora student reading app. Students also have seamless access to age-appropriate ebooks and audiobooks from the Delaware Libraries’ OverDrive digital collection.
Delaware students already have checked out close to 10,000 books and read for nearly 4,000 hours.
On demand math lessons are available through Zearn Math.
One-on-one tutoring is also available to about 5,000 students at 38 sites through DOE’s partnerships with 13 community-based organizations.
A language line also has been launched to provide over-the-phone interpreting in 195 languages available on-demand 24/7. In just one month, the line received an average of 24 calls per day.
