Is it important to maintain state level requirements rather than have every school in the state with different educational requirements? Some media stories reported that if the school didn’t have enough students enroll in the classes they didn’t have to offer them. There is a huge difference between offering the class and NOT even having the class. “Speak your piece at a public hearing from 5-8 p.m. Wednesday at the board offices, 250 E. 500 South. In August, the Utah State Board of Education voted 9-6 to drop the state requirement that students in grades seven and eight take health, physical education, arts, digital literacy and college-and-career readiness courses but requires schools to offer the courses as electives.”
