Description: The article is about k12 login. The author shares her story when she is going for school online. The online school is different from the regular school in where you can complete all your works online and have flexible time schedule of your own.
Today I am going to talk about online school. I’ve been getting a lot of questions from people online and people I know in real life. It’s definitely something I want to address and talk about.
Online school is controversial in a sense. I know some people are totally 100% sure that they are never going to do it,then some people are more open-minded to it.
It is a controversial topic that we have been talked about. I will give you all the information I have on it. When I was looking into online school,there was no resources,there are probably 5 videos about it. So I decide to add one more so I can give you my spiel on it. Changing your schooling form can be a big thing.
You’re changing from a regular public school for eight hours a day to an online school,it can be a major life change. They are 100% different and I will say that and I’ll be honest with you. I personally like it better but you might not.
I am going to do it into two parts. The last part is going to be a Q&A section,I’m going to talk about questions that I get and give my answers about them. For the first part,I’m going to explain to you what online school is.
Online school is school online,it sounds weird but it’s at school. When I go through k12,there are two online schools which are common,they are k12 and Connections Academy. Connections Academy is a little bit more strict,if that is something you need,if you need someone to specifically tell you to do your work and have like specific hours when to do it then I definitely suggest doing something like that.
If you’re someone more like me who want to have a more flexible schedule,you can choose the k12. In k12 you can plan your whole day,such as doing school at 6:00 in the morning or doing school at 6:00 at night,you can do it whenever you want,that’s how I like it,that’s why I do k-12.
The rules in each state are different,some states have more strict rules other states haveno rules,so it depends on the state you are in. If you are interested in doing online school for your second semester,you can think of doing it. That’s what I did last year for my freshman year.
I told my mom about it,we filled out all the forms we got,my transcript was sent over to them and we had an exit interview with the school where they asked you to sign on this paper saying that you were dropping out from the school and enrolling it to a different school.
You’ll have to probably do something along those lines,it’s not a big deal,it doesn’t matter,it’s not going to change anything. The online school I go through is 100% accredited that means that I will be able to get into college,it is high school credits,it’s not a big deal that you’re homeschooled,it’s not hard to get into a college. It’s not going to be a big deal. The score on the SATs or CTS are matter. That’s mostly what it matters about.
Don’t worry too much about getting into college. You should definitely focus on your future and focus on doing something along those lines of college,I personally want to go to college,I know some people don’t,going to collegue is definitely in my plans. But don’t worry if you are not getting accepted because you do online school,it’s not a big deal.
One of the best things about online school is that I’m able to do what I want during the day and not what I want during the day. I can plan what I’m doing every single moment of the day. If I’m busy one day,I have a lot to do,I have an errand to run in the morning and then I need to work at night,I may not have time for school that day and that can be unfortunate,but in online school,you can change your school schedule but they’ll double up the next day’s workload. It’s not a big deal. It doesn’t take too long and I enjoy it a lot.
I’m currently enrolled in six classes I think that’s common,I don’t think that courses are easier online. I don’t think they’re easy. They’re a little bit harder because you don’t have a physical teacher,it can be a little bit challenging especially for things like math or Spanish. I am currently in Spanish and I find it hard when I am doing it online. I am bad at Spanish. I find the pronunciation of the words are a little bit challenging to learn it,there are live lessons that I’m able to attend so I bet it helps.
Those lesson will take some time,they take an hour for the live lesson so it can be time-consuming. I might not be able to use it for a long-time. It’s not a big deal. If you can’t,they’ll usually have a recording list that you can click on and you can also email them and tell them that you have missed the class and they’ll let you catch up.
I’m going to move on to the Q&A part because I don’t know what else to say about. Let’s get started with the Q&A. This is a common question that I get,how long does it take? This depends on you,it depends on everything you do,there are some days where it takes me four or five hours or other days when it only takes me two hours. There are some days where I’m sitting there for five hours. Sometimes it can be a little bit overwhelming,there are some days when they can be harder than others because a lot of my tests came on the same days.
But it is also a nice thing. In a regular public school,if you have a test you usually don’t have work after that,but then you usually need to sit at your desk,the nice about the online school is that when you are taking a test online,you can move to your next test. You can work ahead,you can fall behind,it is very common.
You have to keep up with yourself and keep up with what you’re doing. You should have a planner for sure. I do not know why people surprises at having a planner,but you need that. It is important to keep track of what you have to do,to-do lists are great.
You need to plan out you things because someone else isn’t doing it for you and you need to make sure what’s going on. I’m going to touch on the part saying that you can get ahead,this is how you can get ahead. You can have two or three or four weeks ahead.
You can’t get a year ahead,that’s not how it works. I wish you could do an accelerated process in where you can double up on classes in one semester which it should be equivalent to two semesters,then you’re able to graduate at the end of your sophomore year,I think that is cool,but honestly you can’t do that. I wish you could.
Next thing is though online school is totally free,you have to pay textbook rentals like you do in regular public school. The textbook rentals are significantly cheaper because a lot of my books are online which is nice. I like doing that but you can’t request a physical copy.
If you need it,you will find it hard to do. You can look at the textbook online. I think that a physical copy might definitely help you,you can also download them. I have some of them on my iPad,it’s nice because I can scroll through stuff and it’s more easy to sit there and take notes.
I also get the another question. Do you have homework,how do you do homework? You don’t have homework it’s so different because you’re already at home. It’s classwork. Anything that be assigned as homework can be classroom work. The homework is optional. Some of it is for grades,some of it is not for a grade but it’s also not optional,you have to turn it in.
Some homework is hard some homework is easy,it depends on your teacher. The next question I get is how many hours do you have to attend today? You probably only have to do what you feel like you need to do. If you’re someone who learns quickly you probably only need to do two hours a day,if you are someone who learns slowly you may need to do six hours a day,it depends on you and it depends on your motivation level for sure.
The last question that I have is do you ever regret doing online school/will you ever come back to a public school? My answer is now I’m content with doing online school,I like it,I think it makes sense for my life at the moment. Next year I may totally change my mind and go back to my old school or I may continue doing online school,I am not sure but I will decide it on my own.
I miss some things in regular school,I miss the prom and a graduation ceremony. There’s a difference between graduating with a bunch of strangers that you’ve only ever encountered in an online classroom and graduating with people that you’ve gone to school with in your whole life. It is different. I’m not going to sit here and lie to you,but honestly at the end of the day I think no matter which way you choose,you may one day miss out another one.
