Are email discussions between school board members "meetings" under the South Dakota Open Meetings Law?

Maybe. Courts in some states have held that contemporaneous email communications among a quorum of the governing members of a public body constitute a "meeting" of the public body when the members discuss the merits of pending issues. Email participation in scheduling or similar activity would not, under this analysis, constitute a public meeting.  (See Wood v. Battle Ground School District, 27 P.3d 1208 (Wash. 2001).
