South Dakota lawmakers have taken another step toward studying whether the Common Core standards that establish what students should know in each grade level should be kept in the state's schools.
Earlier in the week, a legislative panel approved a measure that would set up a study of the existing Common Core standards for math and English.
A Senate committee now has endorsed a companion measure that would prevent the state from adopting Common Core standards in other subjects. State officials say they have no plans to adopt any additional Common Core standards.
The State Affairs Committee also approved a bill that would prevent the collection of some kinds of information from students and restrict how information on individual students can be shared.
