Phil Livingston a True Friend of Seaford Education

Mr. Phil Livingston was awarded the 2015 Friend of Seaford Education Award at the November 16, 2015 School Board Meeting. Mr. Livingston actively supports the students and district as a whole throughout our schools and in our community. He can be seen standing along the fence at our home football games and other athletic events, cheering on the team. He is present at most, if not all, of our musical concerts, drama performances and NJROTC events. This year, to showcase our Seaford High School Culinary Program he arranged for the Culinary Program students to provide the pre-show meal for the performers at the Seaford Community Concert. Mr. Livingston, and his wife, have also extended their generosity and sponsored several students in our district when there has been a need. To meet Mr. Livingston, is to have met a caring gentleman who brightens the day for many students and staff and to know someone who is a true friend of Seaford Education. It is with great pleasure that we honor Mr. Phil Livingston as the 2015 Friend of Seaford Education.

Seaford High School Native Language Program Highlighted by DOE

When Holderline Lebreton, 19, was offered a chance to take a world language proficiency test in Haitian Creole, she immediately said yes.

A senior at Seaford High School in the Seaford School District, Lebreton is originally from Haiti. She enrolled in Seaford two years ago and says this is the first time she has seen any test in Delaware offered in her native language.

"It was good to get a test in Creole," said Lebreton, who plans to pursue pediatric nursing after graduation. "I still know how to speak Creole, and the test helped me to remember a lot, too."

Like all students in Delaware, Lebreton is required to earn two credits in a world language other than English to graduate. But as an English language learner (ELL) - a student from a non-English-speaking home or background - having to take a beginner's class in a native language can be cumbersome, especially when other graduation requirements loom overhead.

Recognizing a need to support ELL students more effectively, Seaford partnered with the Delaware Department of Education last year in a pilot program that offered ELL students another route for satisfying Delaware's world language requirement.
