How is online public school different from homeschooling in California?
While there are similarities, online public school has several key differences. A K12-powered online public school:
Provides support and guidance from a school staff that includes school administrators, counselors, and Tennessee-licensed teachers
Removes the need for parents to shop for curriculum by using K12’s proven curriculum, developed by education professionals
Complies with mandatory state assessment requirements
Follows a traditional school calendar
