Noem Says Time May Be Right To Adjust School Funding Formula

School districts in South Dakota depend on the state funding formula for most of their operating budget. They currently get an increase of three percent or the inflation rate, whichever is lower, each year.  Republican Governor candidate Kristi Noem says it may be time to adjust the formula…

Noem says smaller schools are often at a disadvantage…

The legislature in 2016 passed a half cent sales tax increase to fund higher teacher pay. Noem says she can’t say how she would have reacted to that plan…

One of Noem’s campaign policies on her website is “Improving Educations Impact,” which calls for empowering families, and doing more with every taxpayer dollar.
