Delaware solidifies French connection

State leaders renew academic partnership with Académie de Créteil in France.  

 

The partnership was established in 2008 to promote connections between schools in Delaware and their counterparts in France.  Since 2010, Delaware has hosted teachers from Académie for an entire school year.

Today, Delaware Education Secretary Lillian Lowery hosted Académie de Créteil Recteur William Marois at the Distance Learning Lab at A.I. duPont High School.  The lab is a cooperative effort between A.I. duPont and Conrad Schools of Science designed to give students access to a wider variety of courses than would normally be offered in schools because of a smaller number of interested students.

Lowery and Marois also signed a renewed Memorandum of Understanding extending the relationship between schools in Delaware and France.
