Greetings from the Huron School District


I hope that you find our district website to be user-friendly, and constantly changing. The 2016-17 school year is off and running. We are in the final stages of major capital improvement projects, which have taken place over the past five years. This is our second year in the new elementary schools, and it is nice to see the positive difference these schools have made in the
experiences of our students.

This past year marked the retrofitting of a large building that is now our transportation center and just completed in late summer are the improvements to the outdoor sports complex. Tiger Stadium received a major change to the playing surface, as the turf now allows multi-purpose use by PE, music, and the varsity sports of soccer, football, and track. Across from the stadium is the new Tiger Tennis Complex, which features 8 new courts.

Our focus remains on the achievement and development of every child in our care. It is our job to challenge students to develop their academic skills so that they can compete in an ever-changing world. It is also our responsibility to hold students and ourselves to the highest standards of citizenship.

We are proud of a community that opens its arms to the most diverse school district in the state, with children from countries around the world. Our schools look like so much of America, and our students leave prepared to live in a diverse world of ideas and opportunities. The Huron Schools are wonderful places for students to learn from highly qualified teachers in a caring environment. We know that a key to success lies in developing alliances with our parents, grandparents, guardians and taxpayers. We believe that when students receive a consistent message of high expectations from all of the adults in their lives, they will behave appropriately, learn more and achieve more.

We will try to communicate as much as possible with our parents and our patrons. We ask you to communicate as well. Please let us know what we are missing or could do better to meet the needs of all children, and please let others know of the things we are doing well. The superintendent can be followed on Twitter (@HuronSDSupt) and Facebook (HuronSDSupt). These communications, combined with the school board agendas and minutes and the archived video of school board meetings enable patrons to keep abreast with the happenings in the Huron School District. I am honored to be your superintendent and look forward to continuing to work for you and with you in this wonderful school district.

I invite you to learn more about the Huron Schools as you browse our school website. I hope the site provides the information that you, the reader needs from our school district. If you have concerns about the website - or information that you cannot find, please contact my office dolly.venables@k12.sd.us, or our onsite web coordinators – roger.ahlers@k12.sd.us or sherri.nelson@k12.sd.us. These people will direct you to the information that you need - or direct your suggestions to me. If you discover “dated” information, please let me know, and I will share that information with the person responsible for that portion of our website.
