What curriculum is used?

K12-powered online public schools in Ohio use the award-winning curriculum developed by K12’s team of experienced educational professionals:

  • Curriculum specialists and lesson developers plan each lesson and make sure that the material is right for the age and skills of the student.
  • Instructional designers build the activities, working with visual designers and media specialists to choose the best way to present concepts and information.
  • Writers and editors make sure the content is accurate, engaging, and appropriate.
  • Information architects analyze how people will use the online content.
  • Software developers design and build the systems that make K12 curriculum and the online school run.
  • Quality assurance specialists make sure everything works properly.
  • Click below for more details and to see sample lessons.

Online Elementary School

For K–5 students, the curriculum is mastery-based, meaning differing levels of self-pacing are possible depending on how the child is performing. The Learning Coach, or parent, is heavily involved and works closely with the teacher to monitor student progress. Teachers provide instruction through live, online classroom sessions.

Online Middle School

In grades 6–8, live, teacher-led, online classroom sessions help students prepare for tests, master challenging concepts, or address gaps in learning. The Learning Coach provides guidance and oversight, but students begin to take more responsibility for their learning as they prepare to transition to high school.

Online High School

K12-powered schools use subject-specific teachers in high school and require students to stay on pace with the class each day. Live, teacher-led online sessions may be required. Teachers may also hold optional online office hours when students need extra help. Courses may be offered in a variety of levels, such as honors, AP ®. and credit recovery. Learning Coach involvement varies based on the student’s motivation and abilities.

What does a typical online schooling day look like?

Visit K12’S A Day in the Life website to find out. Through engaging videos, images, and timelines, you’ll see what individualized online learning looks like on an average day in the lives of three very different students—Zachary (5th grade), Elayna (7th grade), Paola (11th grade)—and their parents.

You’ll hear about Zachary’s passion for rocks and minerals, watch Elayna work on a science lab (one of her favorite lessons), and see how Paola’s K12 creative writing class is helping her work toward her goal of being a published writer.

Tuition-free, K12-powered online schools are working for these students. They could work for your child, too!

Onyx Insecticide Concentrate

Onyx insecticide contains Bifenthrin, the same active ingredient in Talstar One insecticide concentrate. Recent studies have shown that the best sprays for combating beetles and other tough to kill pests of trees are products containing either Permethrin or Bifenthrin. Permethrin has been available for several years and became the product of choice when spraying for certain borers in trees after Lindane was pulled from the marketplace. Many professionals who have been using Permethrin are now relying on Bifenthrin products in the fight against boring insects in trees, bark beetles .

The differences in Onyx and Talstar are important to consider. Talstar contains 7.9% Bifenthrin; Onyx contains 23.4 % Bifenthrin. This higher concentrate gives far greater yield per quart container, increasing cost effectiveness. Onyx is formulated with a special carrier that gives maximum residual. This residual holds up to rainfall and irrigation far better than conventional insecticide concentrates. Your residual will increase with both foliar and tree trunk applications.

Dendroctonus bark beetles such as mountain pine beetle, southern pine beetle, western pine beetle, Black turpentine beetle and engraver beetles.

Control of Dendroctonus bark beetles such as mountain pine beetle, southern pine beetle, western pine beetle, Black turpentine beetle and engraver beetles.

Prevention and control: Make applications of a spray mixture containing 1.0 to 2.0 pints of Onyx Insecticide per 100 gallons (0.25 to 0.5 Lbs. active ingredient/ 100 gallons) of water to the trunk of the tree with a hydraulic sprayer in the spring of the year to at least half way into the live crown. Spray until the bark is thoroughly wetted by the spray (usually 1 to 4 gallons of spray per tree.) Do not apply more than 0.2 Lbs. active ingredient (12.8 fluid ounces) of this product to trees per acre. Repeat application may be necessary if reinfestation is likely. Application rates and application timing differ according to the target pest and other factors peculiar to each local situation. Consult your local State Extension specialist or other qualified expert for specific recommendations.

Using 1/3 ounce per gallon has proven to be most effective for use when spraying tree trunks for prevention and control.

MyGate’s enterprise Payment Gateway and Debit Orders, coupled with our guidance and expert advice, help merchants in Africa accept more payments from their customers and sell more.

The PCI Security Standards Council offers robust and comprehensive standards and supporting materials to enhance payment card data security. These materials include a framework of specifications, tools, measurements and support resources to help organisations ensure the safe handling of cardholder information. MyGate is Level 1 Certified provider and is required to be PCI DSS compliant, undertaking annual audits from an external Qualified Security Assessor.

The Verified by Visa scheme (VbV) is an initiative that makes shopping online even more secure. This is an industry-wide effort to help combat online fraud. When a customer makes a payment they will be prompted to enter a unique, personal code that has been registered with their bank. The bank then authenticates the cardholder performing the transaction and returns electronic evidence to the retailer of the online authentication. MyGate has completed Verified by Visa certification.

MasterCard SecureCode is initiated on a retailer’s website and interacts with both the cardholder and their card issuer. When a customer makes a payment they will be prompted to enter a unique, personal code that has been registered with their bank.

Use Net Uptime Monitor to help diagnose Internet problems

As I documented last week. I’ve been having intermittent problems with my Internet connection. Just when I thought I’d solved it, I woke up this morning to yet another massive slowdown.

Using the method I described previously—running SpeedTest on at least two devices—I verified that this wasn’t a local hardware problem. Something was amiss with either my router, my modem, or my ISP (Comcast).

This kind of thing can be really frustrating, to say nothing of difficult to diagnose. If I call Comcast, they’ll run their usual battery of tests, then tell me they can’t find anything wrong.

One tool that might help: Net Uptime Monitor. True to its name, this utility helps you track when your connection is up—and, more importantly, when it’s down.

Specifically, it alerts you to Internet connection failures and records the time and duration of those failures. That log may be of help when presented to your ISP.

It works like this: at predetermined intervals, Net Uptime Monitor (NUM) pings three public servers: Google, Level 3, and OpenDNS. If it’s unable to connect to any of them, you’ll hear an alert sound, and the software will record the details in a text-file log.

Now, granted, NUM won’t necessarily pinpoint the source of your connection problem, and it certainly won’t solve it. In my situation, for example, I’m still looking at either a router, modem, or ISP issue. But the log can definitely prove helpful in determining if, say, interruptions occur at the same time every day, or perhaps happen with only one server and not the others. It’s all part of the troubleshooting process.

Net Uptime Monitor costs $9.95. You can use the trial version free of charge as many times as you like, but it will shut down after 30-60 minutes.

If you know of any other good tools for diagnosing Internet connection problems, by all means share them in the comments!
