WILMINGTON, Del. (AP) - The Red Clay school board has voted to continue pursuing an effort to turn around its three “priority schools” that have been cited as having some of the state’s lowest test scores.

Under ground rules approved Wednesday night, the school district rejected some requirements the state wanted. The district rejected the state’s recommended minimum salary for school leaders of $160,000 and a requirement that would force every teacher in the schools to re-apply for their jobs.

The school district has agreed to other changes. It will launch a search for a new principal at each school and allow principals to make changes such as extending the school day, reconfiguring classes and changing their budgets.

Delaware Department of Education officials said they are generally satisfied with the agreement.
