(Dakota News Now) - While the school year has ended across South Dakota for many students, staff and administrators still have work to do.

State Education Department Secretary Tiffany Sanderson says her department is working closely with the Department of Health and school districts to develop plans for safely reopening in the fall.

Sanderson told the State Board of Education Standards that there will be several reports coming up, including a look at how schools across the state handled the past year.

The teacher compensation board will meet next month, Sanderson told WNAX Radio. An analysis of their findings will be released in September.

Most districts were able to keep kids in classes for most of the year with remote learning options as needed.
