SD School Start Date Bill Reworked, Back Alive In Pierre

February 20, 2014, 11:58 AM by Brady Mallory

SD School Start Date Bill Reworked, Back Alive In Pierre
PIERRE, SD -

The school start date debate is back alive in Pierre.

House Bill 1164 has been completely reworked and would now give parents more say in certain school district decisions.

Lawmakers are discussing the latest version of this piece of legislation, which would impact how parents can respond when a school board schedules the first day of classes before the first Tuesday in September.

Under the bill, the start date could go to a public vote if 2.5 percent of registered voters in the school district sign a petition.

It would also give parents more time to respond to other school board decisions.

Brady Mallory looks at the discussion tonight on KELOLAND News.
