Enrollments down slight at the South Dakota’s Tech Schools

SIOUX FALLS, S.D.(WNAX)- Fall enrollment at the four technical colleges in South Dakota fell slightly to just over seventy-one hundred students.

Tech College Board President Dana Dkyhouse of Sioux Falls says holding enrollment steady was a win.

Dykhouse says flat enrollment does put more pressure on their budget because of the drop in tuition and fees.

Dykhouse says employers are pushing the schools to turn out more trained students.

The board oversees the technical colleges in Watertown, Sioux Falls, Mitchell and Rapid City.
