NAMPA -- Back in January people packed meetings to voice their concerns about the technology part of the education reform plan.

Thursday evening, there were 18 community members at a meeting in Nampa to get ideas on how to implement the proposed online class requirement for high school students.

The Idaho State Board of Education recommends each high school student take 2 online classes during their high school years.

The question comes down to just how they should learn online: through immediate live interaction with teachers or do the assignments at their own pace?  

There is one more meeting in Twin Falls on Friday night and the Idaho State Department of Education encourages people to attend.

The task force has to have a plan finalized so they can present it to the legislature in January..
