Budget Committee Discusses School Aid Plan

February 13, 2014, 4:32 AM

Budget Committee Discusses School Aid Plan
PIERRE, SD -

A plan to give extra state financial aid to school districts is getting a hearing from a South Dakota legislative panel that will consider whether the state can afford to spend the additional money.

The bill would boost state aid to schools by more than Gov. Dennis Daugaard has recommended, at a cost of an additional $5.3 million in state spending.

Daugaard has proposed a budget that would raise state aid to schools by 3 percent next year, nearly double the inflationary increase required by law. But groups representing school districts are asking the Legislature to instead provide a 3.8 percent increase, which would put spending per student back where it was before budget cuts were made in 2011.

The House Appropriations Committee plans to discuss the bill Thursday.
