What is K12O? K12O stands for K12 Online Curriculum Programs. We are an online non-profit organization that provides homeschool families, private schools, and hospital home bound students educational options online 365 days a year. We are not affliated with K12 Public School.
How can we benefit from K120's classes? Our classes can be used in two ways: 1) the curriculum is written on the student's grade level so most of our classes can be completed with little or no help at home by the student 2) parents can use the classes to teach the course at home. Think of K120's classes as lesson plans, that you can follow and teach from if you chose that is the best fit for your family.
Do you get a full course or parts of a course? The course is uploaded slowly at the student's pace. When you child submits and turns in all the needed paperwork, the next lesson will be uploaded.
How are the classes assessed? Upon registration, students will receive access to a Google Class Site. Each site was created by a certified teacher in the current field of coursework and is being maintained by that certified teacher. All of our courses are 100% online. We are in the process of setting up a weekly co-op and science lab location in Habersham County. Message us for more information.
What will my family need in order to complete a course? Every student needs a good wi-fi connection, a Google/Gmail email address (parent can setup for free), spiral notebook or binder, and a desktop or laptop computer.
Many curriculum sites online are free, why does your company charge a fee? The majority of the free curriculum sites are full of pop-up ads and involve no feedback or interaction. The dynamics of families have changed through the ages. This means that many times students work on lessons for a few hours alone, while some students have a parent that helps them complete each course. Since the learning experience varies, and student preferences change; we have learned to adapt to each different way of learning by providing an easy formatted lesson that covers all the needed coursework for a class in one area. With the online curriculum, students can work ahead because its self paced. The teacher who created the class will be available to handle grading, tutoring, and parent updates during the course.
Do you offer a trial rate? We do not offer a trial rate, please see our sample pages on our website instead. Remember our classes are created by our contract teachers, we have to pay each teacher for access so a trial rate is not feasible.
Do you have a 1-800 number? If you have questions please email us or use the contact form on our website. Our non-profit organization will take any questions, and our volunteer staff will direct them to the teacher of the specific class you need. We do ask that if you have questions, please look over our website first. We have been in operation since 2010, so we have worked hard to include detailed information on our website that families have requested.
