Question by ♥~The Believers Survive~♥: How does K12 Online public schools work?
Answer by sha_lyn68
How it works depends on the charter they have with the state or local school district.
Typically you are required to log into the website for so many hour a week. In some states you speak with your teacher on the phone or online only anywhere from 1 x a week to 1 time a quarter. In other areas you have to actually go and meet with the teacher a set number of times. I recently read on one site that students meet with their teacher 2-3 times a week (St Louis k12 I believe). Some require you to log into an online classroom for discussions with your classmates. Some offer field trips, labs etc. Some require that you do all the busy work while others only grade you on the tests.It just all really depends on which K12 school you are speaking of.
