Congratulations to George Hawkins, the 2023-2024 South Dakota Teacher of the Year. It is always difficult to pick from all of the wonderful candidates we are presented with each year. George is from the Sioux Falls Jefferson High School. Congratulations!
We are holding the 3rd of 4 Artificial Intelligence workshops across the state. We are in Harrisburg today and the turnout is phenomenal! Educators and board members learning together about the power and possibilities of using this tool in our schools.
The first of four Artificial Intelligence workshops is underway in Rapid City. The others will be held in Aberdeen, Harrisburg and Chamberlain throughout the month. So much for administrators, teachers, and school board members to take in.
The 2023 Principal Leadership and Development program is underway. This program teams new building administrators up with a veteran administrator to serve as a mentor for the year. SASD and DOE work together on this project.
South Dakota had 28 superintendent openings this year. This morning we had 13 of them present for the new superintendents workshop to kick off the superintendents summer conference. Thank you to the superintendents who volunteered for the panel this morning!
