  SD Capitol Task forces make recommendations in time for 2016 Legislature

Three education-related task forces have worked over the course of the past year to develop recommendations, which will form the basis for policy discussions on several important topics during the 2016 Legislature.

Blue Ribbon Task Force on Teachers and Students
The Blue Ribbon Task Force has evaluated South Dakota’s education funding formula, with a particular focus on teacher pay. Its final report features numerous recommendations, including a significant increase in teacher salaries.

Native American Student Achievement Advisory Council
The Native American Student Achievement Advisory Council was established to identify strategies for changing the current learning paradigm for South Dakota’s Native American students. This group’s final report is available on the NASAAC webpage and includes four primary recommendations.

School District Boundary Task Force
The School District Boundary Task Force was asked to examine existing school district boundaries as well as recommend possible changes to those boundaries and a process for addressing minor boundary changes in the future. Find this task force’s final report on the School District Boundary Task Force webpage.
