How does learning work at a K12-powered online school in Tennessee?
With support from teachers, the parent (or another responsible adult) plays a key part as their student's Learning Coach, helping the student stay on their learning schedule, recording daily attendance, and communicating with teachers as needed. Typical daily commitment varies by grade:
Grades K–5: 4 to 6 hours
Grades 6–8: 1 to 3 hours
In grades K–5, the K12 online curriculum is mastery based and provides hands-on learning opportunities away from the computer for different kinds of learning styles.
In grades 6–8, students learn to monitor their own schedule while still working with their Learning Coach for support. The online curriculum includes various levels of hands-on learning.
*Families do not pay tuition for a student to attend an online public school. Common household items and office supplies like printer ink and paper are not provided. Our enrollment consultants can help you address your technological and computer needs.
