SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) — A partnership between three schools and state labor officials is focused on advancing opportunities in the field of cyber security.

Dakota State University, Southeast Technical Institute, the Sioux Falls School District and the Department of Labor and Regulation are collaborating on creating more pathways to a career in cyber security, network security and administration. The Argus Leader says the initiative is called South Dakota Partnership for Student Success — or SDPASS.

Gov. Dennis Daugaard announced the partnership at a news conference at Southeast Tech Monday afternoon. The partnership seeks to expand cyber security career options beyond the traditional college path to high school students, people looking to change careers and high school graduates who do not enroll directly in college.
