Students returning to South Dakota schoolsin August will be greeted by the U.S. official national motto, “In God We Trust,” after a new state lawcame into force over the summer.

The law, passed back in March, compels all public schools to display “In God We Trust” in a prominent position in the school, in lettering at least 12 inches high.

Schools are complying with the new law in a variety of ways, according to the local schools board.

“Some have plaques. Other have it painted on the wall, maybe in a mural setting,” Associated School Boards of South Dakota Executive Director Wade Pogany told The Associated Press. In one school he said “it was within their freedom wall. They added that to a patriotic theme.”

The legislation allows displays to take the form of plaques, student art projects, and other kinds of artwork approved by a school’s principal.
