We’ve Got Standards!

The SD School Library Standards (PDF) are up for review this year. The South Dakota Standards revision process and timeline is adopted by the State Board of Education for review of standards in all contents. This review process allows stakeholders to review current standards and make adjustments to the standards on a 5-7 year rotation. The school library review teams consist of several teacher-librarians and other stakeholders.

The first review meeting is scheduled for August 17-18 in Pierre, SD at the State Library/DOE. Further revision and feedback gathering will occur throughout the 17-18 school year.
