Wilmington schools. Wilmington voices.


The Wilmington Learning Collaborative is a voluntary network of schools in Wilmington across multiple school districts.

The Collaborative’s goal is to create consistency for students, empower educators, school leaders, and communities, and improve outcomes for students in City of Wilmington schools.

Events & Draft Agreement


Over the past year, Governor Carney and his team have met with Wilmington families, educators, students, and community members to hear what they would like to see in Wilmington schools. Based on those meetings and discussions, along with negotiations with school districts, a draft agreement has been developed.  

Learn about the Draft Agreement for the WLC.
