Education Board Repeals Online Graduation Requirement
Twin Falls, Idaho (KMVT-TV) On Monday, the Idaho Board of Education declared a program requiring two online courses for high school graduation - to no longer exist.
The decision to revoke the program came from voters' rejection of proposition three.
The board voted seven to one to ditch the requirement
The Twin Falls School District said, they bring technology resources to students in the classroom every day.
"I just think we have to be careful to make a blanket approach saying all students must take two online courses. Some students can't work in those environments. Their needs to be local control, I think you'll see something come back that would work with more people” said Dr. Wiley Dobbs Superintendent, Twin Falls School District.
The district believes they bring a blended learning approach to high school students.
