Plans to require online classes for all Idaho high school graduates have grown more vague during the struggle over revamping the state’s cash-strapped school system, but it remains likely some sort of online mandate will face the class of 2016. And judging from a Statesman survey of six Treasure Valley school districts, student participation will have to go way up. During the past full school year, just a small fraction of students at surveyed high schools took at least one online course through their district. Those ranged from around 4 percent in Caldwell and Vallivue to nearly 20 percent at Boise’s Timberline.
