Analysis by the Legislative Reference Bureau
This bill expands the types of online classes offered as summer classes or
interim session classes to high school pupils and to pupils in grades 7 and 8 that
qualify for state aid. Under current law, for an online class summer or interim
session class to qualify for state aid, the school board must determine that the class
fulfills a high school graduation requirement in English, social studies, math,
science, or physical education. This bill expands the online summer or interim
session classes that qualify for state aid to include classes the school board
determines fulfill a graduation requirement in health education or that count toward
the number of credits the school board requires for graduation in any combination
of vocational education, foreign languages, fine arts, and other courses.
