Bill heads to Gov. Noem that would allow schools to require remote learning for convicted sex offender students
Convicted rapist in Newell has been attending high school in class
PIERRE – It’s not every day that students half a state away text the participants of a committee hearing that a convicted rapist is sitting in school with them.
But it happened last month during a Senate Education Committee hearing on a bill that would allow school districts to establish a remote education option for students who have been convicted of sex offenses and are on the state sex offender registry.
That bill, Senate Bill 168, passed the full House of Representatives on Monday and is now headed to Gov. Kristi Noem.
