Phyllis Heineman is a former South Dakota state legislator who served several years as Chair of House Education and later as a Senate Appropriator. Phyllis is currently a member of South Dakota’s Board of Education Standards.
A former teacher, Phyllis believes our focus must be on student success and the measures that give children the opportunity to reach their full potential. Parents have a profound responsibility and impact on the success of their child’s education. Empowering parents to choose their child’s school, whatever that choice is, further engages them.
