Glodt Hopeful Legislators Look At Teacher Pay Accountability Standards

The 93rd Session of the South Dakota Legislature begins today at the State Capitol. As the session winds up, educators like Pierre School Superintendent Dr. Kelly Glodt will be watching to see what lawmakers have in store for schools…

One area Glodt would like to see addressed is the Accountability standard tied into the half cent sales tax increase for teacher pay…

He says it could force Districts into deficit spending…

The Accountability standards have forced the Pierre School District to look at options other than adding new staff to deal with an expected increase in student numbers at Georgia Morse Middle School in the next few years. A formal plan to deal with the increases is still being considered.
