4 K 12 IS 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 your specific size and scope. 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. 4

Aventa courses can be hosted on virtually all major learning management systems, including Blackboard, Moodle, ecollege, Desire2Learn, and BrainHoney. You can maintain the relationship with a hosting provider on your end, or K 12 can host your courses for you. Aventa courses are optimally delivered through K 12 s latest innovation: PEAK 12, our intelligent management center that enables schools and districts to simplify administrative tasks and personalize courses. 10

11 Personalize, Engage, and Achieve with K 12 PEAK 12 gives schools and districts a way to aggregate all of their district s online curricula, content, instruction, and administration activities into a single, unified system.

Today, the PEAK 12 Library includes 5,500 lessons from the A+nyWhere Learning System by K 12, which provides content and assessments designed to match skill levels and learning needs for each student. Reporting and Alerts PEAK 12 s robust reporting features give administrators and teachers the ability to glean intelligence about all of their students at any given time through a single, integrated interface. One of the most powerful reports is the Student Engagement Summary, a unique dashboard that shows you how students in a classroom, a school, or across your entire district are performing in their online courses. Enrollment and Administrative Tools Administrative responsibilities, such as managing curriculum licenses, student accounts, and enrollments, are made more efficient with PEAK 12. Student enrollment follows a simple, wizard-like process that guides you through clearly defined steps, and the My Student Enrollments screen presents a highly interactive, searchable, and sortable dashboard that helps you keep track of all course enrollments within your district. 11
