JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) — The state board of education has adopted regulations requiring public high school students to complete three math credits in order to graduate.

According to the department of education, the requirement will begin with the current freshman class.

The department says 47 of Alaska's 54 school districts require more than two credits of math, as do most states.

The regulations were adopted last week.
