State Education Director Visits West Delaware

The Director of the Iowa Department of Education made a visit to West Delaware on Wednesday morning.

Dr. Ryan Wise tries to get out to various school districts around the state each year, in the hopes of visiting every district over the course of several years.

West Delaware Superintendent Dr. Kristen Rickey says it was a fast-paced visit that only lasted a couple hours, but they took the opportunity to visit classrooms at each of their buildings – including a math class at Lambert, a literacy class at the Middle School and a welding class at the high school. District officials also showed the state director Project Lead the Way’s 3D printer and he sat in on an instructional coaching lab.

Dr. Wise’s visit wrapped up with lunch with some of the West Delaware high school students.
