HERNDON, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--K12 Inc. has launched the first-of-its-kind mobile app for managed online K-12 schools nationwide. Available for free download on iOS and Android devices, the K12 app delivers a handheld suite of resources for mobile consumers to get a strong start in a 21st century online learning environment, from enrollment to the first day of school.
“At K12 we believe that every family deserves the opportunity to choose the learning environment that is right for their student,” said Kevin P. Chavous, President of Academics, Policy and Schools. “With this innovative tool, we are removing barriers for families to find the school that’s right for them, and putting the benefits of personalized education directly in the hands of more students across the country.”
Using the app on their smartphone or tablet, families can search by zip code, state and grade level to find K12 partner schools available to them. With enrollment applications now being accepted at more than 70 partner schools nationwide, parents/legal guardians can submit applications directly within the app, and track their progress from start to finish.
Once enrolled, families will have access to the tools they need to ensure a successful school year, including tips for setting up their computers, virtual tours and orientation courses to familiarize themselves with the online learning environment, and access to technical support along the way should they need it. The app provides school-specific staff contact information and policies, and families with more than one student can easily manage multiple student profiles.
“As an established leader in online K-12 education, we are always seeking the next opportunity to innovate,” said Chavous. “With the K12 mobile app, we’re able to streamline onboarding to the online learning experience for students and families, allowing them to focus on what matters most – getting a great education.”
