Inscription. State Consolidated District No. 1 was authorized and created on July 1, 1915. Seven months later on February 28, 1916, voters of the district approved the request of the State Board of Education by a vote of 52 to 1 to bond together schools in the towns of Camden and Wyoming, creating Delaware's first-ever consolidated school district. Not long after, the school board adopted the name of Caesar Rodney for the district in honor of the Revolutionary War hero and statesman. More than 100 years later, the Caesar Rodney School District continues to provide educational opportunities for every student.
