Two board related bills going to Gov’s desk

Two bills supported by ASBSD are on their way to the second floor of the Capitol Building to await Gov. Daugaard’s signature.

 

Senators passed a bill strengthening a school district’s local control over curriculum and method of instruction decisions on a 33-1 vote.

 

Sen. Bruce Rampelberg said House Bill 1101 would “make it clear” that the current practice of school districts making curriculum and instruction will stay in the control of the district in the future.

 

ASBSD supports the bill.

 

Senators also unanimously passed House Bill 1125, which requires a governmental entity to post their meeting agenda in a public place for a continuous 24-hour period prior to the meeting.

 

ASBSD supports House Bill 1125, which would add the word “continuous” to the law.

 

During HB 1125’s Senate State Affairs committee  hearing, ASBSD Director of Policy and Legal Services Gerry Kaufman said the bill is important for the guidance and clarification it provides school boards and other government subdivisions when posting of meeting agendas.
