Former teachers and workers claim the for-profit virtual school management company K12 Inc. used tactics to hide high student turnover rates at the company’s schools, which were detrimental to school performance and education quality, according to court documents.
The future of the state’s largest virtual K-12 school may be in jeopardy. With its charter set to expire later this year, Colorado Virtual Academy needs to find an authorizer, or shut down over the summer.
StateImpact Florida is reporting that teachers at K12 Inc.-managed schools may be responsible for as many as 275 students. The company manages taxpayer-funded virtual schools in more than 30 states, including Colorado Virtual Academy, the state’s largest online K-12 school.
