The legal residence of a student, for the purpose of claiming free school privileges under the South Dakota Constitution will mean the legal residence or domicile of the student’s parents or legal guardian.

The parents or legal guardian may not establish residency in a district for the sole purpose of obtaining free schooling in that district.

A child’s school residence may not change during the school fiscal year unless the child ceases to be enrolled in the school of the district.

When a child is residing in a foster home on a permanent or temporary basis, the child has school residence in the district where the foster home is located.
