DOVER, Del.— The Delaware Department of Education will be holding three public hearings next month to gather public comment on regulations under Governor Markell's Executive Order 36, a statewide review by all agencies to identify and remove regulatory hurdles that requires agencies to solicit input from the public to identify regulations adopted three years ago or more for possible modification or elimination.

Officials said this is an opportunity for the state's education community to unite and promote necessary conditions for student success. According to the department, DDOE will consider the input received and streamline or change regulations accordingly.

"Our goal is to remove burdensome barriers to ensure a singular focus on our state's vision: college and career-readiness for every child," Secretary of Education Mark Murphy said.

The department's hearings are in the first round of agencies to take place as part of the review, with other agencies holding hearings throughout the next year. The DDOE hearing schedule is listed below and public comment will also be accepted through Oct. 1, online at
