YANKTON, S.D. (WNAX) – In her budget address to the legislature earlier this month, Governor Kristi Noem proposed a 2,4 percent increase in state aid to education for next year.
Yankton Superintendent Wayne Kindle says it’s a good start.
Kindle says they would also be interested in sharing in any one-time money the legislature hands out.
With many students using remote learning due to the pandemic, Kindle says the legislature may want to take a look at home school rules.
Kindle says 10 to 20 percent of students have been using remote learning during the first semester.
