Pierre, SD (KELO-AM) Governor Dennis Daugaard (R) has signed legislation which requires waiting periods before expanding Common Core educational standards to new subjects in South Dakota.

The controversial standards are already in place for math and english. This new law, which takes effect July 1st, requires four public hearings on proposed uniform standards for any new subject such as history or social studies.  

The South Dakota Department of Education supports the new law. Spokeswoman Mary Stadick Smith says it's a good thing for citizens to be involved in the content of their children's education.

Bills that would have scrapped Common Core altogether in South Dakota failed in the legislature this year.
