The Sioux Falls School District is going where no other South Dakota school district has gone before.
The board voted unanimously to sign a 5-year contract to create a computer science immersion program at three elementary schools in the district.
A well-organized effort by public school advocates and Senate Democrats to block Betsy Devos from being confirmed as the Secretary of Education came 1 vote short of reaching their goal.
And now the focus turns to funding as an advocate of private and charter schools takes over the Department of Education.
The results are in.
More than 50% of parents, students, and staff in the Sioux Falls school district would like the first day of school moved back into August.
More than 10,000 people completed a two question survey for the district last year.
