The K12 Zone is monitored by K12 moderators trained on the layout of the Zone, interacting with students within the Zone, the code of conduct students must follow within the Zone, and how to take action if a student breaks that code of conduct.
K12 moderators can see students within the Zone, and if they approach a single student or group of students, they have the option to video, audio, or chat with them. The moderator will be notified if there is a dispute between students and is trained to address the issues.
Only K12 students, K12 teachers, and moderators can join the K12 Zone.
The K12 Zone was designed to foster creativity, socialization, and community. While there are some games within the K12 Zone (tic-tac-toe, chess, etc.), the students will be spending most of their time getting to know others within their school. Additionally, if students spend excessive time playing games, moderators can encourage other ways for the student to utilize the K12 Zone.
Yes! The K12 Zone is free for students to use as part of their experience at eligible K12-powered schools.
Your student can access their K12 Zone through their school’s OLS.
Each school’s K12 Zone hours are different. For questions about your school’s Zone hours of operation, please connect directly with your school.
