(AP) A plan to make Idaho the first state to require students to take at least two credits online will officially go before the public for comment next week.

The state Board of Education says a 30-day comment period will start next Wednesday on the proposed graduation requirement. The board is then expected to consider final approval of the online education rule in November. The plan garnered heavy opposition at public hearings across Idaho this summer, but still won initial approval from the board Sept. 9. Board spokesman Mark Browning says the public comment period required after the board voted to advance the rule will not start until Oct. 5. That’s when the proposal will be published in a bulletin of state rules slated to go before Idaho lawmakers in 2012.
