The Department of Education announced Friday that a school board standards meeting originally scheduled for Monday will be postponed.

According to the DOE, a new conference date will be announced soon. The meeting is adjourned to “confirm the submitted comments.”

Monday’s meeting was scheduled to include a public hearing to consider adopting and amending a proposed rule prohibiting the adoption of content standards that foster an inherently fragmented notion.

These rules are intended to comply with Governor Christy Noem’s Executive Order 2022-02. The executive order comes after a bill banning “divisive concepts” in K-12 education was defeated in Congress in the spring. A similar bill was passed for higher education.
