In coordination with Gov. Kristi Noem’s Executive Order, the South Dakota Board of Regents with input from the six state universities has announced that all South Dakota public universities will continue online teaching through the end of spring semester. Originally online classes were scheduled for two weeks; however, given the increasing number of coronavirus cases, online classes will continue through the end of the spring semester. In addition, May commencement will be postponed in response to the global COVID-19 pandemic.

A local internet company is offering broadband services to students at Black Hills State University who do not currently have internet access at home. BHSU announced earlier this week that classes will be taught online for the next two weeks due to the COVID-19 pandemic. In a statement from Vast Broadband, company representatives said they value being a part of each of the communities they serve and they want to do all they can to assist those in need during this critical time.
