Accreditation Files, 1971 - 1977

Identifier: ACC 84-057:

Scope and Contents

Consists of files pertaining to the accreditation of secondary and post-secondary vocational education programs in South Dakota between 1971 and 1977. In 1965, the South Dakota Legislature granted local school districts the right to petition the State Board of Vocational Education, the accrediting agency for vocational education in South Dakota, to be classified as an area vocational education school with the purpose of training students to enter the vocational workforce. Records in this series document this accreditation process and include meeting minutes; memoranda; correspondence between state education officials and national accrediting agencies; committee reports; program self-evaluation criteria; joint agreements between local school districts for the establishment and operation of multi-district vocational education centers; program proposals submitted by local school districts and higher education institutions; and program recommendations prepared by the Department of Education and Cultural Affairs Division of Vocational and Technical Education.
