  • District Statement on Classroom Lesson

    Related to Black History Month


    The Caesar Rodney School District is investigating a hybrid lesson taught at the McIlvaine Early Childhood Center related to Black History Month that the district considers unacceptable and not consistent with Caesar Rodney School District values. The situation is currently being investigated.


    Public Comment Will be Addressed on 2021 Middle School Realignment Proposal and
    Leasing of the Former St. Thomas More Academy

    A special School Board Meeting will be held on Tuesday, March 2, at 6:00pm to discuss the impacts of the pending lease agreement for the former St. Thomas More Academy campus in Magnolia, and the resulting need for the realignment of middle school attendance patterns.
    Once lease terms are finalized, the District plans to create a Middle School for grades 6-8 at the former St. Thomas More Academy. In order to equitably divide the student population the District has contracted with the University of Delaware to analyze the current boundaries and attendance patterns for Fred Fifer III and F. Neil Postlethwait Middle Schools. This review was designed to determine how to best realign the attendance boundaries to ease the student growth at Fifer and Postlethwait while creating a sustainable student population at the former St. Thomas More Academy. The UD study can be reviewed by viewing the PDF files found below.

    Public Comment on the proposal will be accepted and included in the March 2nd meeting. Please send your comments through this email link: Realignment Questions.

    This realignment planning does not impact any students who currently, or in the future, would attend the Dover Air Force Base Middle School.

    The attached draft proposal documents outline the realignment proposal.

Superintendent Message

  • Message From The Superintendent 
     Dr. Kevin Fitzgerald

    I hope this issue of the CR report finds everyone safe and well. Although it seems like years ago, this issue includes pictures of our students celebrating “Black History Month,” the “100th day of school” and the musical “Cinderella”. Now we practice virtual fire drills and our lessons are taught through a variety of online platforms. Yes- It is amazing how in just the blink of an eye, everything that we have come to expect from school has changed. Yet, through these challenges, we have learned and have grown. We appreciate the goodness in those who leave the safety of their homes to prepare and serve food to those in need; those who have reached out and cared for those who are most vulnerable; those who continue to work and keep our buildings clean and safe; those who drive vans to drop off the needed materials and supplies; those who have prepared the computers and set up the schools as internet hot spots; those who have spent countless hours setting up our remote learning platforms and providing professional development for our teachers and administrators; our teachers, paras and administrators who continue to do all they can to help their students learn and grow; and all of our parents, who have accepted a greater role in the educational process. It is truly inspiring to see how everyone has stepped up to meet the needs of our children. Now, while these are certainly challenging times, I want every student to know that they are not alone on their educational journey. They have the entire community ready to provide support, guidance, and help in any way. To the graduating class of 2020- You are not forgotten! You have overcome adversity to earn your high school diploma and I promise you, that your graduation will be one of the most memorable in the history of the Caesar Rodney School District! Now, should anyone have any questions about our remote learning programs, please contact the District office or any of our schools. I look forward to the day when our schools reopen and I can once again visit classrooms to see our teachers and students doing what they do best – teaching and learning! Until then stay safe and stay well!
