Civics education plan created; webinars for K-12 social studies educators scheduled

The department’s three-year plan for the enhancement of civics education in South Dakota is now available on our Civics Education webpage. A group of stakeholders helped to develop this plan, which outlines strategies, goals, and action steps.

The department is committed to ensuring that South Dakota students graduate from the K-12 system prepared to actively participate in society at all levels—local, tribal, regional, state, and national—as informed and engaged citizens. High-quality civics education is crucial to achieving this outcome.

The department will be hosting webinars Jan. 17 and Jan. 23 to gain firsthand feedback from K-12 social studies educators. Please encourage your district’s K-12 social studies educators to participate in one of these webinars:

  • Jan. 17, 3:30 p.m. CT
  • Jan. 23, 4:30pm CT
Participants will have time to offer insight on professional development opportunities, strengths of social studies education, and ways the South Dakota Department of Education can further support social studies education in our state.

Questions? Please contact Melinda Johnson with the South Dakota Department of Education.
