For Educators

South Dakota Partners in Education exists to empower and enrich education across the state of South Dakota. We partner with families, schools, donors, and the government to provide families more options for education.

Private schools that are eligible to partner with SDPE must:

    • Operate within the boundaries of South Dakota
    • Are accredited by the South Dakota Department of Education
    • And provide education to elementary or secondary students

Any schools wishing to participate in the program must file the annual School Participation Agreement with SDPE and comply with the program requirements. If your school qualifies and is not yet participating in our program, let us know! Schools that receive a majority of its revenues from public funds are not eligible to participate.

If your school has benefited from providing SDPE scholarships, we would love to hear from you!
