BOISE -- The Idaho Board of Education is holding seven hearings set across the state on a proposal to require high school students to take two online courses to graduate.

The Spokesman-Review reports board spokesman Mark Browning says the board wants to get as much input as it can. After the hearings, a board committee will vote on its final recommendation for the rule, which may then go before the whole board.

If approved, students in the class of 2016 would have to take two online course credits to graduate. The proposal came from public schools chief Tom Luna. He originally wanted students to take up to eight online course credits, but lawmakers ditched that proposal in the 2011 session.

Hearings are scheduled in Moscow, Fruitland and Nampa next week.
