Idaho's proposed rule requiring students to take classes online
Idaho's State Board of Education will take a vote on a new proposed rule to require high school students to take courses online. It would require students starting with the class of 2016 to take at least two credits online to graduate. One of the two required online classes would be taught remotely, without a teacher present in the classroom. The rule was revised from an overall ban on the teacher being present in the classroom with the students during course time.
