What the HELL k-12?!!!!

My 9 yr old is in k-12 the free online public school option. He started in February.

Today I get a notice he is scheduled to do testing from 8:30-1:30 on Wednesday. This is the first and only notice I have gotten.

I have a baby I'm a sahm I can't get a sitter on extremely short notice, my Dh can't take off Wednesday with such little notice either. I have 2 other boys and someone would need to be here in the morning to make sure they got to school okay.

K-12 knows this. If I went Wednesday I would have to bring my other boys and my baby who would be distracting and cry and my boys would miss school for the day.

Not to mention its in the next city over.

So I wrote back explaining that I need at LEAST a week notice to make arrangements and why. I'm waiting for a response. Ugh.

K-12 sucks.
Try and reschedule or opt out.

So far I'm not extremely impressed

Why is a 9 year old doing o.line school?
I hope they let you reschedule.

I homeschool through a charter but it is all done by me, not online.
My sil pulled my nephew and enrolled him in K-12 then asked if he could come do it with us since she works. It was awful! We made it through a year but never again.

K12 is awful. My daughter did it for a semester, and we hated it. Back to school she went. Next time I'll do a different curriculum, NOT an online one.

We've known for months that testing was coming up. Dont you get weekly notices and check their page daily? We have been with our local k12 for 3 years and no issues. There is a k12 group on here you can join for more suggestions.

Just curious. I also have 9 year old. He's not good on the computer yet but I know he needs to be.
