SD Panel Votes For Openness Of High School Group

SD Panel Votes For Openness Of High School Group
PIERRE, SD -

The South Dakota Senate Appropriations Committee has approved a bill requiring more transparency from the state group overseeing high school activities.

The committee voted unanimously for a provision that would subject the High School Activities Association to the state's open government laws. It would require the group to open its meetings and records to the public and report regularly to a state committee.

Supporters say the bill will provide clarity to a public that's been frustrated by a lack of access to the organization.

Representatives of the association oppose the bill. They say it will strip the group of the authority to have private, executive sessions to discuss sensitive topics such as specific students' eligibility.

The association's board of directors ruled Tuesday to open its meetings to the public.
