1 K 12 PARTNER PROGRAM FOR FULL-TIME ONLINE EDUCATION Curriculum, Technology, and Services to Help Your District s Online Learning Program Thrive Online Learning Solutions for Schools and Districts

2 YOUR PARTNER IN DELIVERING HIGH-QUALITY, INDIVIDUALIZED LEARNING K 12 can help you implement a successful, full-time online school or blended learning program. Over the past decade, a growing number of education leaders have embraced full-time online schooling to help retain current students or reach new ones, provide greater scheduling flexibility to families, and serve increasingly diverse learner populations. Some of the resulting programs have been delivered completely online, while others have taken a blended learning approach by combining online and face-to-face instruction in various ways. We ll partner with you to design a program that s optimized for the unique needs of your district. We ve helped establish hundreds of full-time programs ranging from online public schools available statewide, to local district programs, to an inner-city blended school focused on dropout recovery. We have the expertise and experience to create the highest-caliber program that s right for you and the resources to get your program up and running quickly.

K 12 s integrated solutions are tailored to the unique needs of your students, teachers, and administrators to maximize your students outcomes within budget constraints.

6 K 12 Award-Winning Online Curriculum K 12 is the leading online curriculum provider for grades K 12 in the U.S. We have served hundreds of thousands of students over the past decade and delivered more than 4 million courses since our inception. As an AdvancED-accredited corporation, our focus on quality is paramount; we have invested more than $340 million to date in groundbreaking curriculum, technology, and learning systems. 4

7 K 12 courses which currently total more than 24,000 lessons and 100,000 multimedia components have been designed and developed for online delivery from the outset. Unlike many course providers, K 12 doesn t just scan a textbook and call it an online course. Our courses address the different ways that students learn, engaging them with the varied capabilities of the online medium. This includes animation, game simulations, avatars, threaded online discussion groups, video lectures, online debates, and more. Our curriculum developers start from scratch using research-based methods derived from such benchmarks as the industry-recognized Core Knowledge sequence to develop each course. Over the years, these efforts have led to numerous innovation and achievement awards from the Association of Educational Publishers, the Software Information Industry Association, the U.S. Distance Learning Association, District Administration magazine, ComputED, and other organizations. In grades K 8, plenty of hands-on materials ranging from K 12 -produced textbooks to science equipment, CDs, maps, art supplies, and classic literature are tightly integrated with online lessons. Our Math+ courses for grades K 5, and MARK 12 Reading (Mastery, Acceleration, Remediation with K 12 ) courses for grades 3 5 incorporate the latest adaptive technology that intelligently adjust to individual skill and knowledge levels to ensure that students grasp critical concepts before moving on. In high school, graded assignments measure mastery of objectives at the lesson, unit, semester, and course level. Courses include e-books and highly sophisticated virtual labs, with options for physical textbooks and lab kits. All K 12 courses are designed to align with state and national standards, including the Common Core State Standards. The K 12 curriculum which is available through a full-time schooling partnership and as part of a blended program includes: Language arts/english, math, science, history for all grades Mastery-based courses that are flexibly paced for grades K 8 5

8 K 12 Award-Winning Online Curriculum Four academic levels in high school: Core, Comprehensive, Honors, AP plus Foundations and Credit Recovery courses 40 high school electives: Personal Finance, Web Design, Public Speaking, and more Art, music, and world language courses for K 8 More than 60 STEM courses In addition, K 12 partners have access to Middlebury Interactive Languages, including courses in German, French, Spanish, Latin, Chinese, and Japanese. The curriculum combines Middlebury College s nearly 100 years of expertise in world language immersion instruction with K 12 s cutting-edge technology innovations. The courses are available in eight levels for students in grades 3 12, and are aligned to American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages (ACTFL) standards. Educational Tools and Resources K 12 has an array of integrated tools and resources designed to optimize students learning. From orientation to community, from assessment to counseling resources, we ve got you covered. The K 12 curriculum includes: Benchmark and formative assessments that inform teachers and administrators of students strengths and skill gaps as they relate to normreferenced performance and state standards Targeted test prep content that provides additional practice for individual objectives Strategies for Success, a K 12 proprietary program, to further prepare students in grades 3 8 for success on standardized tests 6

9 Our web-based counseling system for students, parents, and counselors that provides learning style assessments, a wealth of college and career resources, scholarship and financial aid information, and more Orientation courses and programs that are designed to assimilate parents and students to your online school Community-building activities and student enrichment programs, including more than 100 clubs, a variety of competitions (art, math/science, poetry, spelling bees, music), non-k 12 competitions (Doodle4Google and Google Science Fair), virtual summer camps, special programs (invitationonly groups for teens and parents, virtual Girl Scout troops, leadership workshops), and more Parent resources, including workshops, parent clubs, and networking opportunities A web-based phone messaging tool that allows teachers and school staff to record a phone message, in real time or in advance, and send to multiple recipients (families and staff) simultaneously An anti-plagiarism tool that teachers can use to check students work for improper citation or potential plagiarism by comparing it against continuously updated databases 7

10 Technology and Systems K 12 s innovative technology will help you deliver optimal results. The K 12 Partner Program uses a state-ofthe-art learning management system (LMS) to ensure students are engaged in the online learning environment and that their performance can be easily monitored and evaluated by teachers and parents. 8

11 Our LMS for grades K 8, the K 12 Online School (OLS), provides a continually updated view of student progress for teachers, parents, and students. For high school, our LMS also hosts online courses and course management tools. Integrated gradebook and calendar tools help teachers and students plan and track their progress. A dashboard view shows how students are performing across their courses at a glance. And discussion boards support interaction among students in class settings. Kmail, our application, is integrated with the LMS and provides a secure network for student, teacher, parent, and school administration communications. Our student information system supports the management of online schools and provides access to performance data for better decision making. The student information system is integrated with our LMS so that teachers and administrators can maintain all student files. The system can be used for school reporting, grading, transcripts, class/teacher scheduling, progress evaluations, student enrollment, and course placement. Our TotalView suite of unique applications augments the student information system with additional communication, documentation, and evaluation tools to enable a higher level of teacher and administrator effectiveness. 9
