K12

Any opinions in this program? My son starts Kindergarten next year and I'm looking at this curriculum. I'd love to hear some personal experiences.

Re: K12

Hi there mrskfs87!

There seem to be discussions of K12 on this forum often. I am not great w/ searching and linking on DS but here is the latest one I could find:
http://www.diaperswappers.com/forum/....php?t=1448623

Keep checking here periodically and you will find new threads.

Important to remember is most of us here on this forum don't use it so you may get more favorable opinions from a group w/ more K12 users.

I have never used K12 but I go to their info sessions every yr and I have a friend who used them. They can work perfectly for some families and terribly for others. It really depends on the family dynamics and what you want to do w/ it. I know it wouldn't work well for my family @ this point because I see it too demanding of our time. I do love that it is free and they provide so much support.

I would highly suggest you go to at least one of their info sessions. Maybe try to connect w/ a few K12 parents on your own as well.

Hope this helps and best wishes.

Thank you so much for the helpful info. It's just one of the many curriculums we are considering.

We have used K12 but left it. The K12 curric itself is excellent. Its the VA's that are awful. If you go through the VA then it is pretty much like ps at home.

Re: K12

My understanding is that if you are using through a public school system (my state offers it), then it's like public school at home. You have to log hours, report to someone, etc. My state requires 8 hours per day. Part of the 8 hours can be listening to a CD from the music portion, helping with dinner, etc., but I personally do not have the time to tell someone how I spent 8 hours with my child(ren) every day.

If you are purchasing and using it privately, from what I've heard it's a good curriculum.
