South Dakota-- Compulsory Attendance for 5-Year-Olds Starts this Fall

Dear HSLDA Members:

In 2006, the South Dakota Legislature lowered the age of compulsory
attendance starting with the 2010-2011 school year. Children who are
age 5 by September 1 will be of compulsory school age starting this
fall. Compulsory age ends at a student's 18th birthday, or upon
graduating.

For a summary of what is required to homeschool in South Dakota, check
out HSLDA's website at http://hslda.org/laws/analysis/South_Dakota.pdf
.

We would be happy to help you if you have any other questions about
the law--or issues with a struggling learner, issues with your high
school program, or special needs students, etc. Our office number is
(540) 338-5600.

Sincerely,

Scott Woodruff
HSLDA Senior Counsel

-> How long are you in for?

Some families are facing what seems like a lifelong commitment to
homeschooling, with children at both ends of the spectrum -- some
graduating and some just reaching school age. If you're going to
be "in" for a while, consider a lifetime membership with HSLDA.
It's a good deal for families with more than 10 years of
homeschooling ahead.
