Come to the 2014 ASBSD-SASD Convention and “Stand Up 4 Education” with your fellow school board members and administrators.
This year’s Convention, scheduled to take place on Thursday and Friday, August 7-8 at the Sioux Falls Convention Center, will feature a panel discussion with four S.D. legislators on the future of education in South Dakota and a keynote speech from NSBA Executive Director Thomas J. Gentzel.
Representatives Dan Dryden and Scott Munsterman and Senators Tim Rave and Billie Sutton will answer questions on the important issues facing K-12 education.
We are asking SASD and ASBSD members to submit questions that we can ask the panel. Please email your questions to Tyler Pickner at firstname.lastname@example.org or to SASD Executive Director Rob Monson at email@example.com.
