Parents file petition to change school start date in Sioux Falls

Posted: Updated:

Voters may soon have the chance to decide on the Sioux Falls School District’s start date.

A group of parents filed petitions with 6,100 signatures to put the school start date on the ballot. Some parents hope to see the date pushed back after Labor Day, but in April, the school board approved a three-year schedule with August start dates.

The group needed 4,600 signatures to get the issue on the ballot. It’s now in the hands of the district’s business manager, who will verify the petitions are valid.
