2017-2018 CR SCHOOL BELL SCHEDULE ANNOUNCED
The State of Delaware is experiencing a severe bus driver shortage
and the Caesar Rodney School District is taking proactive steps to keep our buses running.
With the alignment of bell times for both the secondary and elementary schools,
we have dramatically increased our efficiency as each bus can service both sets of schools.
Double runs means fewer drivers are needed and cuts transportation costs as well.
Furthermore, the bell time alignment allows for more middle school students
to attend high school classes for distance learning experiences.
The change was made out of necessity - primarily due to bus routes being refused
or dropped by our bus contractors and their inability of finding bus drivers.
After a community committee studied the issue, a decision was made to change start
times so that we were still able to provide transportation services to our families.
Early Dismissal Times are TBA. Please share. Thank you.
Welcome to the Caesar Rodney School District – Home of the Riders!
The 2017-18 school year brings excitement and change to the district as we continue to grow and expand our educational opportunities.
This expansion includes opportunities for all our students through our interactive distance learning program. We are also planning the expansion of our outdoor classroom facilities and the construction of the new ninth grade academy at Caesar Rodney High School!
It’s hard to believe, but we are now into our sixth year of our Chinese Immersion program and the fourth year of our Spanish program. In preparation for expanding our immersion programs into the middle schools, this year will be spent working with our immersion partners from around the country as we plan for this transition.
Speaking of transitions, I want to congratulate the 499 students that graduated from Caesar Rodney High School last June and the ten students who completed the Charlton program. While the challenges our students face in today’s world are considerable, we are proud to have provided a solid foundation upon which they can build careers and lives. I wish them the best of luck as they pursue their dreams and I wish all of you a terrific school year!
Kevin R. Fitzgerald, Ed.D.
