Stocks in this article: LRN

OLATHE, Kan., May 20, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Kansas families now have access to a new and innovative public school option with the announcement of the Kansas Virtual Academy (KSVA). Offered by the Spring Hill School District, the online public school will serve students statewide in grades K-6 beginning next year.

" Spring Hill School District is proud to offer the Kansas Virtual Academy to families across the state. We now offer a seamless virtual education program from kindergarten through 12th grade with the addition of KSVA to our existing 7-12 program, Insight School of Kansas," said Dr. Bart Goering, Superintendent of Spring Hill School District. "We believe that this new school option will expand opportunities for students and provide a high-quality and accountable educational experience."

KSVA offers flexible and personalized learning programs that work for all types of learners. KSVA will use curriculum, technology and academic services provided by K12 Inc. (NYSE:LRN), the nation's leading provider of online learning programs for students in kindergarten through high school.

"We are excited that KSVA is now fully approved to open next school year to serve Kansas students and families," said KSVA Head of School, Sarah Berger. "KSVA will use engaging curriculum and excellent teachers to deliver a personalized education to students. We look forward to building our school community and helping students achieve success."

At KSVA, students attend school by accessing high-quality online curriculum and participating in teacher-led classes over the Internet. Teachers will engage students through real-time online classes and one-on-one sessions. Students will receive daily face-to-face support from Learning Coaches – parents or legal guardians – who assist students as they progress through their individualized education plans. KSVA will also offer opportunities for student collaboration in both curricular and extracurricular activities.
