District Priorities

“There are no limits on how far we can go when we learn together. We strive to create the very best experience for every person in our district so we can become the best in the nation.”

Dr. Jane Stavem, Superintendent  

The Sioux Falls School District is a mission-driven, data-focused district striving to become the best in the nation. This goal is lofty, but attainable when all stakeholders are informed and working together toward continuous improvement and overall achievement.

District leaders met with all stakeholders from January 2021 to May 2021. Staff members, students, parents/guardians, and community members joined small group discussions in-person and via Zoom to discuss opportunities for improvement. More than 900 comments and discussions were paired down to develop the plan that will guide our work in the near future.
