LAPWAI, Idaho - High school students in a north-central Idaho town will have to take gym classes through an online program this year after a school levy failed.
Lapwai School District Superintendent David Aiken told the Lewiston Tribune the district can't afford to hire a physical education teacher, so students will have to take PE through the Idaho Digital Learning Academy, a state-sponsored online school. Students will have access to the school gym and equipment, but Aiken said the teacher would be on the other side of the computer.
Most foreign languages will also be offered through the online school program, and this will be the district's second year without a music program.
The district's $250,000 levy proposal was opposed by about 59 percent of voters Tuesday.
