The chairwoman of the school board in Harrisburg says she will not step down in the wake of a party bust at her home.
Michelle Schirado says she has no intention of vacating her board position in the city south of Sioux Falls.
Schirado has not been charged in the weekend party at her home in which authorities say 25 teenagers were cited for underage drinking. Schirado says she didn't know the 17- and 18-year-olds were consuming alcohol at the backyard bonfire. She also says she doesn't condone underage drinking.
The school board met Monday night but did not take up the matter during its public session. A "student issue" was listed as a topic during a closed executive session.
