'In God We Trust' to be displayed in all public schools

RAPID CITY S.D. (KEVN) - Starting in the 2019-20 school year, the saying 'In God We Trust' will be required to be on display in every South Dakota public school, that's according to a bill Governor Kirsti Noem signed Tuesday.

The bill states the motto must be put in a prominent location, like a school entryway or the cafeteria.

For Rapid City Area Schools, displaying the motto is still in the planning stage.

"We've made plans to start to get the wording inscribed, we're talking about that right now and then were going to make sure it's ready to go in July," Katy Urban the public information manager for Rapid City Area Schools said.

If this new law results in a lawsuit, the state will defend the school districts.
