Is a South Dakota school district required to have a flag and flagpole?



Yes. In South Dakota, all school boards are required to erect and maintain upon each public school building or upon the grounds surrounding each public school building, a United States flag of not less than three by five feet. The flag shall be floated from the flagstaff or pole during the school hours of each school day, except when a violent storm or inclement weather would destroy or materially injure the flag.
