Misunderstanding of Pledge policy draws threats

by

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (KELO AM) - Members of the Sioux Falls School Board are receiving threats on social media over its Pledge of Allegiance policy.

     Board Vice-President Kent Alberty says the Board Tuesday expanded its pledge policy to include middle school students.  He says most middle school  classrooms were already reciting the Pledge.

     Alberty says it’s up to High School teachers if they want to say the Pledge.  He says the Pledge will be required to be said at all school assemblies.  He says presentation of colors will also be carried out at high school assemblies.  It's a clear expansion of policy.                

     Alberty says the threats are coming from outside of South Dakota.

     He says erroneous news reports that the Board was removing the Pledge from High School prompted the threats.
