Websites for parents

SDMyLife

SDMyLife is a site that is available to all South Dakota students. Your student has completed personality assessments, career cruising, a personal learning plan, and much more starting in 7th grade. You will also find FREE ACT prep resources on the site. Each student has his/her own log-in. If you would like access to the account, please email me and I will get you log-in information. It is a great tool to use in discussing future plans with your student.

South Dakota Voices for Children
Information about mental health disorders that can affect children, available services, and how and where to get help in South Dakota.

High School Graduation Requirements
High school graduation requirements. Remember each school also has it's own additional requirements and number of minimum credits to graduate.

Financial Aid (FAFSA)
Free financial aid application for students. It is completely free and a good place to start the financial planning for post-secondary school. For a student attending college in fall 2017, he/she will need tax information from 2015. This is a NEW change in FAFSA, and will apply to all students attending post-secondary school in fall 2017. The earlier you apply, the better your chances at receiving grants if you qualify. Applications are available October 1.
