Four bills found their way out of the Senate on Monday.
Sen. Chuck Welke told his peers the bill’s “intent is to keep families together” in school districts through application preference. An amendment introduced and eventually passed simply strengthened the preference provision.
The bill now heads back over to the House, its chamber of origin, for approval of the amended version. ASBSD is monitoring the bill
Sen. Deb Soholt said teachers “deserve some assurance” that evaluation of their job performance will remain confidential, but noted the bill did not stifle a parent’s right to inquire about a teacher through communication with an administrator.

HB 1126 allows an appointed school board member to countersign school board payments. Sen. Bill Van Gerpen said the bill offers convenience and efficiency to school boards.
Sen. Jean Hunhoff said the auto-injectors are used in a “crisis situation” and help save lives of those suffering an acute allergic reaction. ASBSD is monitoring the bill.
HB 1031, 1126 and 1167 now move to Gov. Dennis Daugaard for his signature or veto.
