Text Search

Enter the text to search for and click Search to get a list of statutes containing the text you entered. Tips:
  • Multiple words will be searched as a phrase. Entering Property Tax will return statutes that contain the complete phrase Property Tax.
  • Logical Operators are allowed. Hunting and Fishing will return statutes that containing both hunting and fishing. Hunting or Fishing will return statutes that contain hunting, fishing, or both.
  • Wild cards(*) are allowed. Entering Approp* will return statutes that contain Appropriation, Appropriate, Appropriated, etc..
  • Punctuation can also be used as operators. + = and, , = or. Searching for phrases that have , and will result in error unless you enclose the entire phrase in quotes.
The Filter option allows you to narrow your search results to a specific Title or Chapter. Here is a tip for using the filter option.
  • Use a dash (-) as the last character of your filter to refine searches. For example the filter "1-1" returns sections in 1-1, 1-10, 1-11, 1-12, etc. The filter "1-1-" returns only sections in Chapter 1-1.

     13-5-34.   Application procedure by school district for waiver from compliance with administrative rules--School reform plan. School districts may apply for waivers from compliance with state administrative rules which a majority of the local school board agrees limit its ability to make specified reforms and are unnecessary for maintaining the quality of education within the school district. Prior to applying for the waivers, the school district shall hold a public hearing within the district to seek public comment on its school reform plan and the waivers being sought. A list of the waivers being sought and justification for each shall be submitted to the Department of Education at least sixty days before the date that waivers are to occur. The request for waiver shall provide a method for evaluation which includes the involvement of students, parents, teachers, and administrators. The secretary of the Department of Education may approve waivers of up to four years. Any district which is aggrieved by a decision of the secretary of the Department of Education may, within thirty days, appeal to the South Dakota Board of Education Standards pursuant to chapter 1-26.
     The South Dakota Board of Education Standards may promulgate rules, pursuant to chapter 1-26, to establish standards for waivers, reform plans, approval process, and rescission procedures.
