Broadcaster Press 7 June 12, 2018 www.broadcasteronline.com Public Invited To Comment On Proposed Changes To State Graduation Requirements PIERRE, S.D. – The public is encouraged to engage in the statewide conversation about proposed revisions to South Dakota’s high school graduation requirements. The official public comment period on the related administrative rule changes is now open. Members of the public can view the proposed rule changes and make public comment by visiting rules. sd.gov and following the “Department of Education” link. Written comments must be submitted by July 12. The state Board of Education Standards will hold a public hearing on the proposed rule changes at its July 16 meeting in Pierre. Individuals may also provide comment at this meeting. Proposed changes to the graduation requirements aim to combine opportunities for rigor, student engagement and flexibility. The proposal was developed to provide students with multiple opportunities to meet their postsecondary and career goals within a framework of general high school graduation requirements. “One major change in these proposed requirements is the concept of endorsements,” said Secretary of Education Don Kirkegaard. “The proposed requirements would allow all students to graduate with the same high school diploma, but additionally, students could earn advanced endorsements, which signify students have taken coursework with a specific focus.” Students could earn more than one advanced endorsement, since they share some of the same course requirements. Students would not be required to earn endorsements. The proposed endorsements are as follows: • Advanced: indicates a student has pursued the coursework consistent with entrance requirements for postsecondary education at a university • Advanced Career: indicates a student has career experience in a concentrated area, based on academic and/ or workplace experience and a related credential • Advanced Honors: indicates a student has pursued advanced rigorous, academic coursework consistent with the South Dakota Opportunity Scholarship course requirements SDDA Reminds Producers Of Dicamba Label Instructions PIERRE, S.D. – Throughout the spring season, the South Dakota Department of Agriculture (SDDA) reminds farmers to read and follow all label instructions when applying agricultural products, including dicamba products. The SDDA is using the federal label for use in the state for Engenia, Fexapan and Xtendimax with Vapor Grip technology herbicides. Per the label, these products are restricted use products, meaning the applicator must be a certified private or commercial applicator to purchase and apply the products. All persons applying the products must also complete a dicamba-specific training and examination. Documentation of completion of the training and examination will be required to purchase these products. “We appreciate the effort that producers and applicators put forth to keep up with label requirements,” said secretary of agriculture, Mike Jaspers. “As a producer myself, I understand the time and energy that farmers put into their crop each season and realize the importance of having a productive growing season, while being responsible stewards and good neighbors.” As with all products registered by the department, applicators are required to read and follow the label prior to and during application. The application of Engenia, Fexapan, and Xtendimax must be completed between sunrise and sunset when wind speeds are from 3-10 mph at boom height. Applications can occur until the R1 growth stage of the soybean crop, also known as beginning bloom. Applicators are required to maintain records of each application; records are required to be completed at the end of each day of application. Tank mix information must be printed and stapled to the spray record to verify the applicator referenced the website no more than seven days prior to application. The labeled tank mix information and allowable nozzles are available on the manufactures’ websites. More information on dicamba products and label requirements can be found on the SDDA’s website: sdda.sd.gov, by clicking on the Dicamba Information link under the Happening Now section. Agriculture is a major contributor to South Dakota’s economy, generating $25.6 billion in annual economic activity and employing over 115,000 South Dakotans. The South Dakota Department of Agriculture's mission is to promote, protect and preserve South Dakota agriculture for today and tomorrow.
