SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) - The head of South Dakota’s largest school district says Sioux Falls teachers will “without a doubt” see a pay increase next fall.

Gov. Dennis Daugaard on Friday signed into law a statewide half-cent sales tax increase that will help boost teacher pay in the state. Although districts can now say their teachers will get a raise, they can’t yet say how much.

Sioux Falls School Superintendent Brian Maher tells the Argus Leader (https://argusne.ws/1LYIrvl ) that he’ll have conversations with other districts, with the school board and with the district’s business manager to establish the text and intent of the legislation.

Maher says the sooner the district can do this, the better, because a lot of people have very reasonable questions as to what their financial future looks like.
