A record number of students have enrolled at South Dakota's four technical schools for the second year in a row.
Lake Area Tech in Watertown, Mitchell Tech in Mitchell, Southeast Tech in Sioux Falls and Western Dakota Tech in Rapid City report a total of 6,179 students enrolled this fall. That's up 228 students from last year.
