In December of 2017, four organizations—Dakota State University, Southeast Tech, the Sioux Falls School District, and the South Dakota Department of Labor and Regulation—announced a partnership to create a new workforce development program in South Dakota. The four core partners formed the South Dakota Partnership for Student Success, or SDPaSS. The idea is to serve students at all stages of learning as they work at their own pace to gain credentials and experience. https://sdpass.com
