The public has the chance to comment through early next week on proposed state Board of Education policy changes on course offerings.

The board proposal would require high schools to offer students an optional computer science course. The Charleston Gazette-Mail reports it also would change social studies and science requirements and course offerings.

Under one proposal, schools would be allowed to determine course instructional time. Previously, counties had to request state board policy waivers before offering high school credits for courses with fewer than 8,100 instructional minutes.

If approved, the changes would take place the next school year. The public comment period ends on March 14.
