School News

The South Dakota Department of Education released the 2014-2015 School Report Cards on Monday, September 21, 2015.  The report card reports a variety of information that the school will use in the coming year.  The information will guide professional development and allow teachers and administrators to focus on areas of improvement.  The report card is available on our school website as well as the South Dakota Department of Education website.

The State uses the report card to assign rankings to schools and districts in South Dakota.  The Canistota Elementary School earned the classification of Status School.  A Status School is a school that ranks in the top 5 to 10 percent of all schools in the state.  This is an honor for our district.  Our middle school and high school are ranked as Progressing Schools.  Most of the schools in the state are Progressing Schools.
