Online Schools in Minnesota Versus Traditional Public Schooling

Minnesota public schools, both brick-and-mortar and online schools, have much in common. They follow a traditional school calendar, adhere to attendance and state testing requirements, and offer core curriculum taught by state-licensed teachers. But there are some differences, too. With K12-powered online schools, your child’s educational program is personalized to their individual needs. Online students also gain flexibility in terms of how, when, and where they can complete their work. So long as you have access to an internet connection, your child can be logged in to school.
