Redistricting Interim Plan Consortium Member Feedback

This feedback document summarizes Redding Consortium member feedback on the interim plan from the April 11, 2024 meeting.

Redistricting Interim Plan
The final redistricting plan must address 13 stipulations as outlined in the Delaware Code and may address additional considerations. Per House Bill 229, the Redding Consortium may submit one or more “interim plans” for action that address redistricting – without including all of the components expected in a final plan – as a means to demonstrate areas of consensus, foster dialogue, and provide structure for the plan development to come.


This interim plan defines a framework and process for creating a final redistricting plan. It presents a path forward to the State Board of Education (SBE) around boundary shifts for school districts, immediate support for our city schools, the timeline and engagement process to develop a final redistricting plan, and policy ideas and reforms to address systemic and systematic change for Wilmington students.
Draft Governance Proposal

This is a draft governance proposal developed by Redding Consortium leadership and presented to the Redding Consortium members in March 2024.

The Consortium’s Definition of Educational Equity

Since 2020, the Redding Consortium for Educational Equity has made considerable investments in Wilmington students and their future.
