Parents & Students
District Schools


Welcome to the Colonial School District located in New Castle, Delaware. Colonial is a grades K to 12 public school district. The district vision is Every Student College and Career Ready. By the time your child graduates from the Colonial School District, he or she will have the competitive edge over other Delaware high school students to enroll in post secondary institutions, obtain scholarships, and have licensed certificates to apply for a variety of jobs and careers throughout Delaware and the nation.

Superintendent Search – Update

The Colonial School Board continues to work with the Stakeholder Committee and the University of Delaware to develop a profile for the posting for the superintendent position. There is a Special Public Board meeting on April 29, 2014 to review the survey results and develop a profile from the community feedback. The hope is to post the position soon afterwards.


Summer Program Survey

In addition to Colonial's traditional Summer Enrichment Programs, we are planning to hold a variety of one or two week summer camps at William Penn High School. We are looking for parent/student interest in determining some of the programming information.
The cost of the camp would be $50 per week per camper (Monday through Thursday), would be approximately 3 hours long and transportation would not be provided. Please click here to complete the Parent Summer Program Survey.
