School Choice Options In South Dakota
There are a variety of school choice options available for many of the 207,000 children living in South Dakota. Families in South Dakota can choose from traditional public schools, private schools, and homeschooling.
South Dakota families can use School Choice Week’s resources on a year-round basis to identify schools and learning environments that best meet their children’s needs. During our annual January celebrations, schools and organizations work to organize school fairs, parent information sessions, and other events to help parents learn about their options. In 2021, we partnered with 63 schools and organizations to host independently-planned virtual events in the state. Our National School Choice Week 2022 celebrations are planned for January 23-29, 2022.
Governor Kristi Noem issued an official proclamation recognizing South Dakota School Choice Week 2021.
