School boards submit the number of students at their schools to Pierre

AVON, S.D.(WNAX)- The last Friday in September is when school districts count heads and submit that number to the state.

Their state aid for the next year is then based on that total.

Avon School Superintendent Tom Culver says they are hanging on.

Culver says every move in a small town is important to the school.

Culver says they also used some federal Covid-19 dollars to add help in their lower grades.

Culver says they have had no students turn up with a positive Covid-19 test so far this school year.
