School Report Cards
School, district and state report cards are now available on the South Dakota Department of Education website. They can be accessed at A hard copy is also available for viewing at each school and at the Alexander Mitchell Library.

District Wellness Policy:
Access to healthier foods and beverages is important because healthy, well-nourished students are better learners! Students who consume healthier foods and beverages are more likely get the nutrients they need to learn, play and grow. In addition, consistently providing healthier foods and beverages outside of the cafeteria will build on the great strides being made in the cafeteria to offer healthier foods and beverages. Please consider healthier options when sending food to school with your child. Some options are listed below:

Quaker Chewy Granola Bars
Welch’s Fruit Snacks
Snack Pack Pudding (Fat Free)
Nature Valley Granola Bars
Teddy Grams
Nutrigrain Bars
Rice Krispies Granola Bars
Special K Bars

Many additional options can be found at under the Live Healthier > Eat Healthier Tab. Thank you for your support!


ICU Program

ICU stands for Intensive Care Unit. Education has been defined as the knowledge or skill obtained or developed by the learning process. Instruction, exams and classroom assignments are all critical parts of the learning process. When a student fails to satisfactorily complete classroom assignments, their grades suffer and the knowledge or skill that should have been obtained through the learning process is diminished. ICU is a program designed to help students achieve better results by providing focused time to complete missing assignments. The goal of ICU is to help students learn the materials they are presented in class by ensuring they have completed the required assignments. Students will be placed in an ICU by the teaching staff when they have missing or incomplete assignments. Attending ICU is NOT optional, it is a requirement once assigned.  Students are assigned to ICU by teachers on an “as-needed” basis. ICU is not a disciplinary tool, it is a time for students to work on missing assignments and get help if needed. Students will be assigned to ICU by the teacher of the class in which the issue occurred. The student will then need to report to ICU at specific times to work on completing their assignments. ICU provides time for students who may require more individualized instruction.  We also have an ICU Lifeguard who monitors and helps with situations that become more complicated or problematic due to missing assignments in multiple classes.

One key to the success of ICU is communication. Every time a student has a missing assignment as entered by the teacher in their grade book, the parent(s)/guardian(s) will be notified by the school through email, phone calls, or text messages. If your phone number has changed, please contact the school.  You are encouraged to contact the teacher or our ICU Lifeguard with any questions or concerns.

As a parent, it is important to remember that ICU is not a negative intervention. It is an opportunity to address issues before they get out of hand. Please talk with your children about ICU and help them understand the importance of completing assignments.

Indian Education Information and Study Night Schedule

Required Postings:
NCLB requires that we inform parents of the highly qualified status of our staff members, complaint policies, and the district and building report cards. 

Highly Qualified Staff
The No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 requires that all teachers are highly qualified for their teaching assignments.  It is our district’s policy to hire only highly qualified teachers and paraprofessionals.  If you would like information regarding the professional qualifications of your student’s teacher, please contact the school principal.

Complaint Policy
In accordance with federal Title regulations, the Aberdeen School District must inform students and parents of Policy KLB (Public Complaints about the Curriculum or Classroom Instructional Materials ),  Policy KLD (Public Complaints about School Personnel) , and Policy KED (Public Complaints about Federal Programs).  The Aberdeen School District welcomes constructive criticism of the schools when it is motivated by a sincere desire to improve the quality of the educational program and to help the school personnel in performing their tasks more effectively.  The policies provide the specific procedures for contacting district personnel with this feedback.  The policies are available on the district’s website and can also be obtained in all district buildings.

District and School Report Card
The state of South Dakota has recently changed the way student achievement is calculated and considered. More emphasis has been placed on how kids are growing academically through the entire school year, instead of how they perform on a test one time a year. This new system is being put in place a piece at a time with input from the United States Department of Education and other educational groups. Student test scores, along with other information, are being used to help determine a School Performance Index or SPI that allows our schools to be compared to others in the state to see how we are doing.  Detailed reports of how all students in South Dakota scored may be found by going to the Department of Education’s Webpage at: and looking at the state level reports. District and school level reports may also be found on the same web site by selecting the school year and the type of report you would like to look at. For help in getting to these reports or understanding what is in these reports, please call your child’s school and talk to the teachers or the principal.
