Tiffany: My name is Tiffany Roach, and I have two girls in K12-powered schools of Texas. We chose K12 because of COVID-19 concerns.
I was scared going in with Julie's education specifically was because she is a SPED student and she's also autistic. I called her teacher and surprisingly, he answered right away and explained to him how her needs are for English, and that she's extremely behind for a seventh-grade level. She's on a first-grade level. And he immediately understood and offered one-on-one tutoring three times a week or as long as she needed it. They were able to do every single thing that a brick-and-mortar-school would do for an IEP plan for an autisitc child. And she honestly has thrived and come leaps and bounds just through K12.
In her previous brick-and-mortar school, Zoe was bored because she's a very smart child. She learns, I guess you could say faster than students at her grade level. And because she was stuck having to work on their level because majority of the class were on, you know, second-grade level, she didn't feel challenged, and she was bored, and therefore finished very quickly. And was pretty much showing out to the class and would get in trouble. Being in K12, she has the ability to go as far as she wants to go because it's set to her needs.
We switched to K12 because of COVID-19 concerns, but we decided to stay at K12 because when you have two kids with completely different education needs and K12 is able to meet every single one of them, and they do it enthusiastically, they're so ready to help, there's no reason that I won't stay at K12.
