A dozen at one district, six at another, the Associated School Boards of South Dakota is keeping track of the number of teachers getting cut at school districts across the state. Later tonight on KELOLAND News, Katie Janssen will show you the numbers and what the association expects to see next.

Meanwhile, at the university level, South Dakota State University is apparently closing an agricultural lab because of budget cuts. A senior chemist says the lab has 17 staff members that would be affected. David Brown is on campus to get student reaction.

Governor Dennis Daugaard is in Canton today at the announcement of a company expansion. Peggy Moyer will have more on its impact on the local economy and community development.

I just received a news release that the Clark County Commission approved a declaration of emergency or disaster for its spring flooding. Erich Schaffhauser is in northwest of there in Edmunds County today where the roads are getting worse. He’ll show you the work being done to help farmers get to and from their properties.

And if you like doing pilates or working out in general, tonight’s Healthbeat has something a little different to show you. A new piece of equipment is allowing a new form of pilates but the contraption used looks a bit odd. Kelli Grant shows you how it works tonight on KELOLAND News at Six.

I hope you’re able to get out and enjoy the weather today.  Meteorologist Brian Karstens joined our morning newsroom meeting and suggested you take it all in today because it’s forecast to be the warmest day of the week.  Let’s just say the Polar Plunge in Sioux Falls for Special Olympics on Saturday is expected to live up to its name.
