Indiana's state schools superintendent says he wants all students in the state take at least one class online before graduating from high school.

Superintendent Tony Bennett says he'll outline his legislative proposal for the requirement during his State of Education speech on Tuesday.

Bennett tells The Indianapolis Star ( ) such a requirement is a way to make sure students are prepared to do online work. He says he wants local school districts to decide what types of courses to offer online and whether students would complete online assignments at home or during regular school time.

Bennett is to give his speech Tuesday evening at the Indiana History Center in downtown Indianapolis.
