December deadline for CTE Course approval

November 5, 2020

South Dakota students can earn academic credit by completing approved career and technical education courses that address the pertinent standards within the curriculum.

However, schools must have approval to offer credit, which may be obtained through an application process with the South Dakota Department of Education.

The application must include:

  • Course syllabus
  • Standards based curriculum
  • Teacher certification
  • Assessment of standards by methods including end-of-course exams, authentic assessment, project-based learning, or rubrics.

Applications must be submitted by December 1 for the following school year. More information is online on the South Dakota Department of Education website.
