South Dakota Council for Economic EducationThe goal of the South Dakota Council on Economic Education (SDCEE) is to improve the quality and quantity of statewide economic and financial literacy education.

We provide teacher training programs, educational material development and effective distribution of resources through a statewide lending library and web page. These activities focus on teaching basic economic concepts to students in kindergarten through 12th grade and to adults through community programs.

The SDCEE, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, is part of the outreach services of the Beacom School of Business. Partnerships and affiliations with statewide, national and international organizations, enables the Council to meet the needs of the citizens of South Dakota.
