2013 Legislative session wraps up
March is behind us, which means another legislative session has come and gone. The Legislature approved funding for several new grant programs, including classroom innovation grants, CTE grants and technology grants. The department will begin setting up application processes for these grants in the coming weeks, and more information will be forthcoming as it becomes available.
Gov. Daugaard also issued a line item veto to House Bill 1137, in order that the $5.8 million in one-time funding to school districts be distributed based on current fall enrollment (SY 2012-13) rather than enrollment from the 2011-12 school year.
