BOES adopts rule changes and updated standards revision timeline

At its May 11 meeting the South Dakota Board of Education Standards adopted changes to special education rules. The changes do the following:

1) Update state rules to align with federal Individuals with Disabilities Education Act rules amended by the Every Student Succeeds Act

2) Correct the definition of preschool age and preschool program to align with the IDEA preschool age.

The board also adopted an updated content standards revision timeline. Standards are typically scheduled for review and adoption on a five-year rotation for career and technical education and a seven-year rotation for core content.
