Start Online Public School Strong

Once enrolled in a K12-powered program, you are part of a nationwide community of Learning Coaches, teachers, staff, and students. Throughout the year, you can connect with this community by accessing national programming, engagement opportunities, and support—all aimed at helping students reach their goals.

We encourage you to ask lots of questions and take advantage of the ongoing support available through your school, K12, and the community of families with students at K12-powered schools. Remember, you’re not alone.

Check out these short videos for tips on starting your school year off strong:

They include essential start-up information and support as well as tips and strategies from Learning Coaches across the nation. They’re a great way to connect with the larger K12 educational community of families and resources for continued support.
