Just Robyn Posted February 7, 2012 Share Posted February 7, 2012 My state will be offering both K12 and Connections Academy public school at home options for the first time next year. Money is very tight for us and so I have found myself wondering how I will possibly pay for curriculum for next year, so I feel I need to at least consider the public school at home option. I would love to hear the experiences with this that others here have had. I also have some specific questions. Have any of you done public school at home but still had your child take some class(es) in a brick and mortar public school? If a particular part of the given curriculum didn't work for your child, what did you do? What is the accountability like? I realize with K12 (I know less about Connections) students are required to log in and check boxes for attendance and claiming to have completed assignments, but does anyone other than the parent actually view the assignment? Will they make any changes to their prescribed curriculum for a given year? My 4th grader has been doing US History all year this year and it looks like both public school at home options have US History for 5th grade. Do you need to return non-consumable items at the end of the school year? That's all I can think of but any experience/info is appreciated. General comments along the lines of, "I would never give up my freedom to get curriculum for free," are not helpful. Thank you. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
