South Dakota Tech Schools To Share $1M

South Dakota Joint Appropriations Committee members met earlier this week to discuss the rearrangement of funding for South Dakota’s Technical schools, reports South Dakota Public Broadcasting.

Due to an overestimate of the number students attending South Dakota Tech schools by state officials, there was a budget surplus of $1 million, which will be put into school infrastructure instead of back into the overall state budget.

The money was originally going to be awarded to the schools according to their per student population, but the leadership of the institutions agreed instead to divide the funding equally. Each of the state’s four tech schools will receive $250,000 to invest in their school’s infrastructure system and the future of technical education.
