New report card shows performance data for South Dakota school districts

The 2014 South Dakota Report Card highlighting school performance was released this week by the Department of Education, showing data for the state, school districts and individual schools. Because South Dakota students participated in a field test of the new Smarter Balanced testing last spring, there are no new student test results included in this year’s Report Card. Test results will be reported again in the summer of 2015

Full school board in place as district readies for new year


The Timber Lake School Board has all five seats filled after operating with one vacant position for most of the past two years. Members are FRONT (L-R) Heidi Ducheneaux, Pat Aberle; BACK: Chad Mettler (chairman); Willard Nash, and A.J Lindskov (vice-chairman).
Pat Aberle took the oath of office Monday evening, filling the seat on the Timber Lake School Board that had been vacant for nearly two years. Aberle was appointed last month but was not seated until the August meeting. He had attempted to file a petition for the vacancy but was ruled ineligible because he was not registered to vote at the time.

There are serious ramifications, however, for the small number of people who suffer from more severe symptoms.
