We are just starting the awards ceremony at the Joint Convention. Great kickoff with Scarlett Lewis andChoose Love this morning followed by a panel discussion on Medical Marijuana and home school participation. Many great sessions to attend!
The DOE / SASD mentoring program is underway in Sioux Falls leading up to the Joint Convention. We have 16 new administrators taking part this year along with their veteran mentors. Our goal is to support them and make sure they get off to a good start. We need them all!
We finished our day on Capitol Hill holding a virtual visit with Dusty Johnson’s office and then a very special meeting with Senator Thune in the Republican Whip office in the Capitol. Thanks to all for their time today.
SDSSA Leadership is in DC advocating for public education. Currently meeting with Senator Rounds education aide. Sharing our concerns about flexibility with the federal money and to let local control dictate what a community needs.
