Board to consider accountability rules
Proposed changes to administrative rules covering South Dakotaís accountability system for public schools are now available on the Department of Educationís website. The rules reflect much of the content of the stateís ESEA Flexibility Waiver application, which was approved by the U.S. Department of Education in late June.
The South Dakota Board of Education will hold a special meeting on Thursday, Aug. 23, at 11 a.m. (Central Time) to address the proposed rules. The meeting will be at the MacKay Building, 800 Governors Drive, in Pierre.
