SD Budget Committee Rejects School Aid Plan

February 13, 2014, 2:08 PM

SD Budget Committee Rejects School Aid Plan
PIERRE, SD -

A South Dakota legislative panel that helps put together the state budget has rejected a plan to give extra state financial aid to school districts.

But officials representing local schools say the issue will not be decided until the Legislature passes a budget in March.

The bill sought to 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 increasing 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.
