OSEU survey now open: Encourage teachers to participate

The South Dakota Department of Education invites all South Dakota K-12 educators to complete the state’s first-ever survey aimed at measuring educators’ perceptions of Oceti Sakowin Essential Understandings and Standards (OSEUs) implementation.

The survey link was emailed to principals on Sept. 7 and is intended to gauge current awareness, knowledge, practice, and advocacy for the Oceti Sakowin Essential Understandings. Survey data will inform targeted professional development, support, and guidance aimed at increasing statewide capacity to implement the OSEUs.

Principals, please complete the survey and forward it along to your curriculum directors, instructional coaches, teachers, and paraprofessionals.

In addition to the OSEUs, the survey asks respondents about culturally responsive curriculum and instruction and professional development.

This survey was developed in partnership with the South Dakota Office of Indian Education and the Regional Educational Laboratory Central (REL Central).

Survey deadline: Sept. 28, noon CT
