Dr. Jane Stavem

After a national search that included highly qualified internal and external candidates, the Board of Education for the Sioux Falls School District is excited to announce that our new Superintendent is Dr. Jane Stavem. Dr. Stavem fits the desired characteristics and leadership profile that was created by HYA and Associates through extensive community and staff input.

In her 31 years in education, she has served as a music teacher, Director of curriculum and instruction, Assistant Superintendent, and Superintendent. Her knowledge of curriculum and assessment will be a great strength as we continue to strive to meet the goals within our Strategic Plan. Married with two adult children, Dr. Stavem looks forward to becoming part of the Sioux Falls community. Dr. Stavem, who grew up on a farm in Nebraska, has worked in a variety of states, mostly Minnesota and Nebraska, with both large and small school districts and will bring a unique perspective with her to Sioux Falls.

We are excited to welcome Dr. Stavem and her family to our community effective July 1, 2020.
This announcement is contingent upon successful background check and contract negotiations.
