Public suggestions for Sioux Falls school names not public
SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) — The Sioux Falls school district asked for public suggestions for names for two new schools, but it isn’t immediately making all of the public responses public.
Superintendent Brian Maher has denied an open records request from the Argus Leader newspaper . He says the public survey isn’t required in the naming process.
School board members are expected to vote on a committee’s recommendations for names for a new middle school and high school later this month. The district at that time expects to release a public summary detailing the decision and says it will “explain the community survey results.”
The naming process comes after Sioux Falls voters last September approved a $190 million bond to fund new schools and other improvement projects around the city.
