SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (KELO) — The Sioux Falls School District plans to reject bids for district gymnastics equipment, according to today’s school board agenda.
On Oct. 13, U.S. District Judge Charles Kornmann issued a preliminary injunction in the lawsuit that was filed in response to the school district cutting gymnastics. Kornmann ruled the district must reinstate gymnastics for this school year and it could not sell the equipment.
Based on an agenda item for today, the district did receive several bids for the equipment. The agenda item said the bids should be rejected because of the judge’s ruling.
The district has set meetings on gymnastics for this year. Current 7th through 12th grade students and their parents can attend meetings on Tuesday, Oct. 24. The meeting for Lincoln and Washington high school gymnasts is 7:30 p.m. at the Lincoln High School gymnastics room. The other meeting is for Jefferson and Roosevelt gymnasts at 7 p.m. in the Roosevelt High School Library.
