Education Data Governance Group to meet in October

The South Dakota Education Data Governance Group began meeting regularly in April. Meetings are held bimonthly, with the next meeting scheduled for Monday, Oct. 6 at 10 a.m. CDT, at the MacKay Building, 800 Governors Drive, in Pierre. Meetings are held in-person and online.

The group consists of representatives from 12 school districts and each division within the South Dakota Department of Education. District representatives were recommended by ESAs (education service agencies). Group members help inform policies and decisions regarding data entry, use, analysis and security. Members will also aid in the further development of SD-STARS, South Dakota’s statewide longitudinal data system.
