New rule requires supervision for distance learning

Over the objections of school administrators and parents, the Montana Board of Public Education on Friday unanimously passed an online-education proposal backed by the teachers union.

It requires that all distance learning, including college courses, be supervised by a Montana-certified K-12 teacher endorsed in the discipline being taught.

However, the board voted to delay implementation of the rule change to no later than July 1, 2009, to tweak the proposal and give the Legislature time to fund it.
