Critical Needs scholarship approved

Senators gave the final push to Senate Bill 233, which establishes a critical needs teaching scholarship and creates a trust fund program for student’s working towards a teaching degree in a critical needs curriculum area.

 

On a 35-0 vote, the Senate passed an amended version of SB 233 with $1.5 million attached. The bill now heads to Gov. Dennis Daugaard for signature.

 

Representatives passed SB 233 by a 51-18 vote on Tuesday. The bill could supply up to 5 scholarships, said Sen. Tim Rave (25). The initial request for the scholarship was for $5 million.
