Broadcaster Press 5 September 25, 2018 www.broadcasteronline.com Board Holds Public Hearings On Proposed Content Standards ABERDEEN, S.D. – The South Dakota Board of Education Standards held the first of four public hearings on academic content standards in world language and school library Sept. 17. These two sets of proposed standards will receive hearings at locations across the state this school year. “Content standards serve as road maps for teachers, students and parents, outlining what students should know and be able to do,” said Becky Nelson, director of learning and instruction for the South Dakota De- partment of Education. “Standards provide consistency statewide, while instructional and curriculum decisions are made at the local school district level.” According to state law, the Board of Education Standards must review academic content standards on a cyclical basis. In addition, the board is required to host four public hearings as part of the standards review process. The remaining three hearings on these standards will be held throughout the 2018-19 school year at board meetings in Sioux Falls, Pierre and Rapid City. The proposed standards were developed by work groups, whose members consisted of K-12 educators, postsecondary representatives and other key stakeholders. The proposed standards and links for submitting public comment can be found at http:// doe.sd.gov/ContentStandards/review.aspx. The complete South Dakota Standards Revision and Adoption Timeline is available on the South Dakota Department of Education website. The board also adopted changes to administrative rule that remove the requirements for paraprofessional educators to obtain and renew state-issued certificates. The requirements for state-issued certificates for paraprofessionals were part of the 2017 overhaul of the state’s educator certification rules. Today’s board action was in response to concerns expressed by some school leaders about the feasibility of the new requirements for paraprofessionals. Get your ad in the.. Classifieds Today!

Cherry, Vermillion Custer State Park To Host Annual Buffalo Roundup And Arts Festival PIERRE, S.D. - The South Dakota Department of Game, Fish and Parks (GFP) will host the 53rd annual Buffalo Roundup and 25th annual Arts Festival in Custer State Park later this month. The Buffalo Roundup begins at 9:30 a.m. MDT on Friday, Sept. 28. The Arts Festival will run from Thursday, Sept. 27, through Saturday, Sept. 29. “Each year, the Buffalo Roundup brings up to 20,000 spectators from around the world to Custer State Park to view the park’s 1,300 buffalo and watch the Old West come alive,” said Katie Ceroll, director of the Division of Parks and Recreation. "To have an arts festival with more than 125 arts and craft exhibitors means that there will be no shortage of entertainment for the entire family.” The parking areas for the Roundup, located near the corrals along the Wildlife Loop Road, open at 6:15 a.m. MDT and close at 9 a.m. MDT on Sept. 28. For safety reasons, spectators need to remain in the viewing areas until all the buffalo are corralled which typically occurs around noon. The annual Arts Festival runs from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. MDT on Thursday and Friday and from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 29. The Arts Festival takes place near the State Game Lodge. “While the Buffalo Roundup’s primary purpose is herd management, it also provides our visitors an experience that is unique in the entire world,” said Jim Hagen, Secretary of the Department of Tourism. “This event sets South Dakota apart from other states. We hear from visitors around the world about how incredible it is to watch the bison thunder over the rolling prairie. It’s something they never forget and provides great storytelling about our state.” A state park entrance license is required on Thursday and Saturday, but there is no cost to attend the Buffalo Roundup or Arts Festival on Friday. Share the experience by using #SDintheField and #BuffaloRoundup when posting images to Facebook, Twitter or Instagram. Next year’s Buffalo Roundup will be held Friday, Sept. 27, 2019.
