About the State Board of Education

The State Board is comprised of seven members appointed by the Governor and confirmed by the State Senate.  While much of the Board’s monthly meeting time is spent performing its statutory responsibilities such as reviewing and approving regulations and applications for charter schools, the Board has defined its purpose and leadership through the adoption of a well thought out and clearly articulated vision and mission as well as long range goals which impact all aspects of public education in our State.

The Board’s regular monthly meetings are open to the public and are usually scheduled for the third Thursday of the month, beginning at 1:00 p.m.  The meetings are normally held in the Cabinet Room on the second floor of the Townsend Building, Dover, Delaware.

You can reach the State Board of Education office by calling (302) 735-4010 or by email to its Executive Director, Donna Johnson at
