Many construction projects expected to wrap up in 2022

Sixth-grade orchestra students, directed by Abby Wimbiscus Black, rehearse in the new 2-story addition at Dempsey Middle School. The addition was one element in districtwide improvements at all school buildings, which will wrap up in 2022.

The New Year will see Delaware City Schools complete an extensive series of building modifications launched in 2020.

The work included improvements or additions to all school buildings, funded by voter approval in 2019 of a $36.5 million bond issue that allowed the district to transfer payments from older, retiring bonds to the new bond.

“We are very excited to be finishing up our construction project,” said Superintendent Heidi Kegley. “Conger Elementary will be receiving additional classroom space where we will have our fifth-graders and will for the first time provide additional classroom space at Conger that we have needed.”

The playground is in the final stages,” she said.

“We just need to add some green space,” she said. “There’s multiple new pieces of playground equipment. And we moved that from the front of Conger to the back of Conger, so it’s expanded significantly.”
