Schoolwork for Gabbie and Josh is a mix of scheduled, live classes called Class Connect sessions, self-guided offline assignments, and extra educational activities their mom and Learning Coach, Elmater, helps arrange for them.
For example, a typical day may have Josh starting with a live math class led by his state-certified teacher, followed later in the day by have self-guided lessons for history (he’s learning about early civilizations) and World War II reading for Language Arts. If he gets stuck, his mom is there to help him as well as his sister as she goes through her work for the day.
A typical day for Gabbie may start with vocabulary practice and a writing exercise and then include live math and science classes later. She, Josh, or Elmater can ask the teacher questions in the live classes, via email, or during weekly office hours.
A benefit of schools powered by K12 is that the educational materials—a computer, textbooks, supplies for offline activities, and more—are provided.
