Stanley County Elementary Exceeds State Averages
After two years of hard work, implementing changes, and pushing students to reach the next level, the work of the Stanley County Elementary’s staff has paid off. With the release of the annual State Report Card, Stanley County Elementary School has been removed from the Department of Education’s FOCUS school list in South Dakota.
“Our goal was to do the required two years and make it off the list as soon as the option became available by the requirements. I am pleased to say we met that goal, and I am very proud of the work the staff has done. Change is never easy, but they met the challenge and our students reaped the rewards,” stated Michelle Glodt, elementary principal.
Stanley County Elementary students not only met but exceeded the expectations set, and the Smarter Balanced Assessment scores proved that. The 2015 results showed 3rd grade surpassing the state average by 23 percent in math and 21 percent in English language arts. The 4th grade students exceeded the state average by 16 percent in both tested areas, and 5th grade was 13 percent above in ELA. While 5th grade math scores may not have been what we hoped, we are confident they will improve in the future.
Stanley County Elementary School took full advantage of the supports and financial resources provided by DOE in order to make this happen. The additional professional development days and instructional coaching supports played an integral role in this success along with the willingness to re-evaluate all programs for their effectiveness.
“We have now set a new bar for ourselves, and as the changes we have made and strategies we have put in place become routine business within our school, we believe it will only continue to improve,” stated Michelle Glodt.
For more information on the district and state report card results, please visit or any district office.

Cheyenne Elementary is “Exemplary”

Stanley County School District is very proud to announce the “Exemplary” status of Cheyenne Elementary School according to the South Dakota Department of Education annual report card. To receive an “Exemplary” rating a school must be within the top 5 percent of the schools within its given category.
Cheyenne Elementary is the only remaining country school within Stanley County and falls into the small school category of DOE. During the 2014-2015 school year, Cheyenne Elementary served ten students within grades K-8.
Michelle Glodt, who serves as the administrator for Cheyenne Elementary, stated, “This is a tremendous honor for Mrs. Connie Johnson and her students. Mrs. Johnson is a wonderful teacher and greatly deserves this recognition. Her students work hard and their scores consistently prove this year after year, so to reach this status is truly a credit to her work.”
