How IEP’s Work with K12

K12-powered schools provide the support, accommodations, and modifications your child needs — as specified by their IEP.


Who qualifies for an IEP?

If your student has a documented disability, they may qualify for an IEP under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act. Your school can provide an evaluation to determine if your child meets the criteria.


A better way to learn

Away from the distractions of traditional classrooms, your student can focus on learning. You or another adult will serve as their Learning Coach, keeping them motivated and on track.


Meeting students at every stage

Special education services at K12-powered schools offer a blend of on- and off-screen learning, plus adaptive curriculum that meets students at their level.
