(Pierre, SD) — South Dakota lawmakers are considering legislation to lower the mandatory school attendance age. A Senate bill would bring the age down from 18 to 16. The bill would reverse a move by the 2009 legislature that raised the age to 18. Students must be at least 18 to sit for the GED unless they receive authorization from the court, or verification that they won’t graduate with their class, are under the direction of the Department of Corrections, or are enrolled in Job Corps.
