Summary:

In South Dakota, the hours that a youth may work during the day are dictated by the public school calendar. Even if a private or homeschool has different school hours than the public school, the time that a youth can work is dependent on the session of a public school.

This bill allows that the hours a youth is permitted to work are dependent on the, "child's own school or other educational program."
