CAPE GAZETTE, Friday, April 5 - April 11, 1996 - 33 Sussex Tech one of three in state named Blue Ribbon School By Michael Short Sussex Tech has moved into the educational elite after being hon- ored as a Blue Ribbon School, one of only three such schools in Delaware. A group of dignitaries, includ- ing Governor Tom Carper, Sussex County Council President Dale Dukes and most of the Sussex County legislative contingent as- sembled on April 2 at Sussex Tech to celebrate the honor. "This is a great day for Sussex Tech, a great day for Sussex County and a really great day for Delaware," said Governor Tom Carper. "I have never been proud- er." U.S. Secretary of Educatioff Richard Riley said "these schools are testimony to the successes we can have in American education if we work together to raise stan- dards and focus on the basics of better schools." The national Blue Ribbon pro- gram honors excellence in teach- ing and instruction, student achievement, leadership and parental involvement. State Board of Education Vice President Jean Allen said that "in many ways you are ahead of the state in educational reform.., this is not just an outstanding school in Delaware, but in the nation." "This is a day of pride for those of your who are Ravens (the school name) and friends of the Ravens," according to Governor Carper. Riley said a school's success is based upon the following: leader- ship, teaching environment, cur- riculum and instruction, student environment, parent and commu- nity support, student achievement, organizational vitality, parental involvement and technology. To be selected for recognition, Sussex Technical High School submitted a written application to the State Department of Public In- struction and was selected as a Delaware Blue Ribbon High School. Sussex Tech's application was sent to a national review pan- el that selects the most promising schools for site visits by experi- enced educators who submit re- ports on their findings. The review panel considers the reports and makes recommenda- tionsto the U.S. Secretary of Edu- cation, who announces the schools selected for recognition. Sussex Technical High School representatives will be invited this spring to Washington D.C. to re- ceive a special flag to be flown over the school and a plaque com- memorating the achievement. This year, 216 public schools and 50 private schools in 40 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands, including the Bureau of Indian Affairs Schools in Cass Lake, Minnesota, will be recognized.
