Students & Families
Today, the Sioux Falls public schools serve nearly 25,000 students, the largest community in South Dakota. During the last few decades, Sioux Falls has experienced steady growth, and we are one of the largest employers in Sioux Falls, employing teachers, education assistants, administrators, food service workers, nurses, clerical staff, maintenance workers, and support staff specialists.
It is the vision of the Sioux Falls School District to provide opportunities and challenges for each student to succeed as a lifelong learner in a changing world. The District values a highly trained and committed workforce, continually evaluating and improving their own and student performance. The District recognizes its role as a key contributor to the social, civic, and economic foundation of this community. To achieve this vision, we must ignite the hearts and minds of our students, staff, families, the business community, and citizens. With a long history of fiscal responsibility to complement that motivation, stakeholders can rest assured the students of the Sioux Falls Public Schools are getting an amazing education at the most affordable tax rate.
One of the goals of the Sioux Falls School District is to improve efficiency and accountability in fiscal operations. To further this goal and provide transparency in governmental accounting, the District posts its audit reports on this website.
