Communities, families, and educators partnering for learner success. This is the work of BHSSC’s Community, Family, and Special Services division.

South Dakota Statewide Family Engagement Center (SD SFEC)

The South Dakota Statewide Family Engagement Center (SFEC) unites students, families, schools, and communities together by focusing on learner needs from “cradle to career.”

The South Dakota Statewide Family Engagement Center was made possible by Grant #U310A180043 from the U.S. Department of Education.

Data-Driven Special Education Supports, Services, and Resources

BHSSC Special Education division offers supports and services to districts that focus on improving special education student outcomes. We use engaging, data-driven, and teacher-focused practices that result in effective change built around a district’s specific individual needs.

21st Century Grant Programs

The 21st Century Programs are co-curricular programs that enhance a student’s normal learning opportunities everyday after school and during the summer. The program staff take great pride in implementing up-to-date teaching practices. The programs immerse students in Project-based STEM, Reading, Arts, Music, Physical Education, and Social Emotional Learning activities that they can use outside of the school walls. The programs not only provide a safe and secure setting for children after school, but also give students the opportunity to belong to something bigger than just themselves — a stepping stone to becoming upstanding citizens.
