    The right place for talented and smart people to learn, explore and apply their knowledge. Proper guidance of well educated and experienced mentors is the matter of privilege for an employee.

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at K12 full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Work from home (but not even reasonably any longer)

    Cons

    - Corporate, profit first mindset. - students/teachers come LAST - Leadership agendas are pushed for self-promoting admin to pad their resumes and climb their career ladder - Head of School believes teachers signed up for a low salary when choosing to be educators - Work is farmed out to teachers with minimal or no stipends when someone rightfully leaves after having enough - Sped Admin fall in step with who is in power rather than doing what is right for students - Data that determines decisions is skewed to fit the admin’s agenda. - Research based decisions are not made to support students - Admin are severely disconnected from the the teaching role, with many of them having never taught in a classroom. - Teacher turnover due to monstrous caseloads - Increased expectations for SY 21-22 to work from home yet have your family/children be required to be out of the house. Write ups will result following single offenses. - awful benefits - high micromanagement (do you like sending screenshots proving you did your job? Do you like having your active keystrokes tracked to monitor you like big brother? This is what next year is bringing) - No state retirement - if you’ve read this far, stop and run

    I worked at K12 full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    You can work from home, but only if you have a nice home. You will be written up if your background shows that you are in your home, even if your dog barks if someone comes to your door.

    Cons

    Making $20k less than the local school district because of the perk of working from home. Being told that I'm just a teacher and my ideas don't matter. Having to submit minute by minute reports of how you spend your time. Putting teachers and administrators on write up because of low school-wide benchmarks but not being provided supports to actually help kids. You will teach to the test here. Creativity and autonomy is grounds for write up. Low morale. Poor culture and climate. You will be worked like a dog. You will have to take screenshots to send proof of completing your work for EVERY task you are assigned. Working from home is NOT worth this. Every single other virtual school out there is healthier than this. An 80+% turnover before the 21-22 school year is telling of how toxic this place is.

    Former Employee - Marketing in Herndon, VA

    No Opinion of CEO

    I worked at K12 full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Traditional salaries and benefits offered with many choices (although medical benefits are expensive). Good career growth prospects as they do often promote from within. Don't have unrealistic expectations on amount of work required and employees can usually work remotely.

    Cons

    Job insecurity as they have one to two rounds of layoffs every year and often replace longterm employees with contractors. Frequently making decisions to save money leaving the impression that profit rather than providing quality education or helping improve employees' situation is paramount. Seem to prefer very young, right-out-of-college candidates when hiring, presumably to save money, but creating a lack of age diversity in staff.
