SD public universities to move classes online after extended spring break

PIERRE, S.D. – South Dakota public universities will move classes online next week after an extended spring break due to COVID-19 concerns.

In a press release Monday, the board says beginning Mar. 23, all classes in the state’s six public universities will be moved online. Regular, in-person classes are scheduled to resume Monday Apr. 6.

Given the changing situation, the board will reevaluate the situation on Friday, Mar. 27.

In a statement from the SD Board of Regents:

“As leaders in higher education, we are thankful for our university presidents and their staff, who have worked tirelessly the past several weeks, providing wisdom and knowledge to help navigate these difficult times that still include a level of uncertainty. Please refer to university specific news releases and websites to stay up to date on the status of campus operations.”

Last week, the board announced an extension to spring break through Mar. 20 out of health and safety concerns for students, faculty, and staff throughout the state.
