Local News

South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem announced in her State of the State Address she would like a law passed requiring all high school students to pass the U.S. Citizenship test before they graduate.

KCAU 9 spoke with Superintendent Dr. Jerry Rasmussen of Dakota Valley Schools to see how he feels about the potential addition to their curriculum.

“We are very supportive of civics education our own students are required to take a semester of U.S. Government. Nt having seen the specific test, and there is not a bill that has been entered in yet, so we don’t really know the details. But in general, we’re really supportive of civics education,” said Rasmussen.

To become a U.S. Citizen you must answer six out of 10 questions correctly in the civics portion of the citizenship test.
