Hi Katharine,
Our K12 Academies are public schools but laws are different for each state. In Colorado, students cannot be duel-enrolled, which is defined as a student enrolled both at COVA and another publicly funded school in the State of Colorado. However, a student may choose to attend extra-curricular activities as long as no course credit is given at the discretion of the other school district.

I would check with the Department of Education in your state to see what laws apply in this instance for you particular state. There are many new hybrid models coming out, so perhaps your state may allow for something like this.

K12 does offer the curriculum for purchase, but I see you don’t want to homeschool.

As far as career opportunities with K12, check out this site. http://www.k12.com/about_k12/careers/

Thanks for stopping by and I wish you and your daughter a wonderful 2010-11 school year.

Hi Katharine, to answer your questions, our K12 Virtual Academies are public schools and a child cannot be dual enrolled, which means a student can’t be enrolled in 2 publically funded schools. This is true for the state of Colorado, I would check with your state’s Department of Education to see what laws apply in the state you live in.

The K12 curriculum can be purchased, but I see that you do not want your daughter homeschooled. The other option is a K12 Virtual Academy which is a public school with public school teachers, along with all the accountability of a public school, but your daughter would be schooling at home.

There are many hybrid models opening up around the country so check to see what options are available in your particular state.

Here's a link to check for job openings within K12. http://www.k12.com/about_k12/careers/

I hope that helps, please feel free to contact me if you have further questions and I hope that your daughter has a fabulous 2010-11 school year.

It definitely helps to hear other thoughts on this and what you say makes a lot of sense. Thanks :)

Very interesting point, and I can totally understand why some professors won't allow the use of headphones while taking a test.

Great question, a question I get asked very often. Time spent in school really depends on the grade, and the child. Some children get it and get it quickly while others take longer. I would say that in elementary school children school about 3-6 hours total, In MS anywhere from 5-8 hours a day and in HS it depends on your courses and again the student. My son took several AP classes this past year, 7 classes total, and some days it took him 6 hours, while other days it took him 9 hours. This is without time spent on homework though. And sometimes we choose to do something special during the week and that leaves some subjects for the weekend.

Since we are a public school we are required to meet the state requirements for attendance just like B & M schools do.

Thanks for stopping by, LulaLola and for always taking an interest in how we school. :)

I know, weddings bring you back to that special place, just like the birth of a child does. Great pictures.
