SD School Officials Pleased With Gov's Budget



Bookmark and Share

Education officials in South Dakota say they're encouraged by school aid increases proposed by Gov. Dennis
Daugaard, but they caution that the state's educational system is still suffering from recent budget cuts.
   
Daugaard's spending plan includes a 4.5 percent increase in state aid to school districts. Rapid City Education Association President Sue Podoll says it's a move in the right direction.

Wade Pogany with the Associated School Boards of South Dakota says the additional money will be crucial as schools across the state struggle under the $52 million cut to the K-12 system during the past legislative session to help deal with the state's budget deficit. He says the proposed $22.2 million in education increases proposed for the next budget year begins the recovery process.
