HB 207 prohibits the Department of Education and the State Board of Education from requiring that districts adopt the Common Core State Standards. 

Both chambers sponsored similar bills in the 2015 session. SB 101 was vetoed by Governor Maggie Hassan, while HB 276 died in the Senate. The Senate Education Committee unanimously voted that the bill was “duplicative of current law.” The House Education Committee also found SB 101 “unnecessary,” as “no law in New Hampshire requires school districts to adopt the common core standards, nor has it been mandated by the department of education.”
