K12 Inc. Responds To Seminole County, FL Allegations

K12 Inc. (NYSE: LRN). In response to a number of articles recently issued regarding allegations of teacher certification issues in Seminole County, Florida, K12 hereby issues the following statement.

In May 2012, when K12 first became aware that Seminole County submitted its materials regarding teacher certification issues (the “Seminole Materials”), K12 immediately requested copies of the Seminole Materials under Florida’s Sunshine Law provisions.

Seminole County forwarded its materials to the State Department of Education without any prior communication regarding them with K12.

Immediately upon receipt of the Seminole Materials, K12 launched an internal investigation into what it considers to be very serious accusations. K12 also retained a respected former U.S. Attorney to investigate the allegations. Further, K12 affirmatively reached out to the office of the Inspector General (IG) and offered to assist in arranging interviews of the relevant staff and access to all relevant records. The IG worked with K12 on scheduling interviews, and K12 also has worked closely with IG staff to understand and access all the relevant records.

K12 respects the integrity of the IG’s process, and therefore will not comment on the substance of that process until the IG has had the time to complete the work and issue its finding.

However, K12, after its own investigation and that of the independent counsel, does not believe that the conclusions drawn in the Seminole Materials about teacher certification issues related to the instruction of the 88 students involved in the relevant Survey 3 report are correct. We look forward to continued cooperation with the IG as that office completes its work. Conclusions prior to the completion of that work are premature.
