The Christina School District got a year’s delay for three inner-city Wilmington facilities.

The state says the three Priority Schools can retain their principals and teachers.

Meanwhile, state leaders are still deal with the redistricting plan that would put the district schools into the Red Clay School District.

The Wilmington News Journal reports that the Christina School Board voted last night to keep the Bancroft and Stubbs elementary schools as well as the Bayard Middle School in its district for another year.

The state will provide funds for new transitional assistant principals at the schools in consultation with the district.

There will be some flexibility for the schools which will be able to implement their own rules such as extending the time in school and more training for teachers.
