Wanted: New STARS Certified Trainers

The SD-STARS team is seeking SCTs for the 2020-21 school year. The new SCTs will convene during an online summer workshop, to be held July 13. Ideal SCT candidates are individuals who work with multiple districts (i.e. school success facilitators, employees of educational cooperatives, and others who provide education trainings to multiple districts).

For more information on becoming an SCT, email STARSHelp@state.sd.us. There is no cost to attend the summer workshop or to serve as an SCT. Any costs associated with leading training sessions for districts should be provided by the districts.

Register for the July 13 workshop on GoSignMeUp.

During the 2019-20 school year, 10 individuals served as SCTs. These individuals received regular updates on, and access to, resources about SD-STARS to better support their work with schools and districts in South Dakota. Although they typically did not provide SD-STARS-specific training sessions, they were better equipped to use SD-STARS to supplement the work they were already doing. There are two main requirements to become a new STARS Certified Trainer: attend the summer workshop (online) and participate in monthly update calls on SD-STARS.
