How does K12-powered Ohio public school work?
K12-powered online school in Ohio starts with quality curriculum and certified teachers who work with each family to tailor teaching to student needs. Students follow the pacing guide to complete online lessons and offline assignments and projects. Students also attend live, virtual Class Connect sessions where teachers deliver instruction in an online classroom. A Learning Coach—usually a parent, guardian, or other trusted adult—is an important resource for their online student, supervising and participating in instruction in the early grades, and monitoring student progress as older learners begin to work more independently.
How does K12-powered online school in Ohio grow with my student?
A personalized approach to learning helps ensure school advances in stages as your child grows. Here's what to expect in different grade levels:
For K–5 students, the curriculum is mastery based, meaning differing levels of self-pacing are possible depending on how the child is performing. The Learning Coach, or parent, is heavily involved and works closely with the teacher to monitor student progress. Teachers provide instruction through live, online classroom sessions.
In grades 6–8, live, teacher-led online classroom sessions help students prepare for tests, master challenging concepts, and address gaps in learning. The Learning Coach provides guidance and oversight, but students begin to take more responsibility for their learning as they prepare to transition to high school.
K12-powered schools use subject-specific teachers in high school and require students to stay on pace with their class cohorts. Live, teacher-led online sessions are required, though the number and frequency vary depending on the student and the courses they are taking. Teachers may also hold optional online "office hours" when students need extra help. Courses may be offered in a variety of levels, such as honors, AP®, and credit recovery. There are also college and career programs that allow students to explore and build skills in information technology, healthcare, business, and other highly sought-after industries. These programs connect students to industry professionals, provide work-based learning experiences like internships, and even prepare students to take industry certification exams.
