Longitudinal Data System pilot begins
The South Dakota Student Teacher Accountability Reporting System (SD-STARS) is picking up steam! Last week, the Department of Education held a webinar with 30 staff from ESAs and 10 pilot school districts. Referred to as the Data STARS, this group will also travel to Pierre to attend an SD-STARS pilot training next month, where they will learn more about SD-STARS, explore the portal and reports, and take back what they learned to their districts.
The 10 pilot districts are:
• Andes Central
• Belle Fourche
• Bennett County
• Todd County
• Shannon County
• White River
The Data STARS are essential for the success of SD-STARS. They will be the first staff to use the system, and they will provide essential feedback before the statewide rollout in March 2013.
As SD-STARS develops and expands, it
will rely on these Data STARS to be the
key point of contact with LEAs.
