Senate ed takes up online course rule…

As the Senate Education Committee prepared to hold its hearing this afternoon on the administrative rule approved by the State Board of Education requiring two online classes for Idaho students to graduate from high school, committee Chairman John Goedde, R-Coeur d'Alene, noted that lawmakers passed legislation last year in the “Students Come First” package calling for an online-learning high school graduation requirement. Because of that, he said, “Testimony on the thought of 'no online courses' is not appropriate.” Instead, he said, the committee will hear testimony only on the details of the board's rule.
