    Central Ohio K12 (CentralOhioK12) - Welcome to Central Ohio K12! This group is intended for all families using the K12 curriculum in the Central Ohio area. Whether you homeschool independently with K12 or are enrolled in the Ohio Virtual Academy (OHVA), or are just thinking about k12, you are welcome.

    While the school has representatives that occasionally helpfully participate on this board, this board is independent of the school and not officially affiliated with the school itself. And although we are users of the k12 curriculum, we do not have an official affiliation with k12, either. This group is intended to facilitate open communication amongst parents.

    Members of this list discuss anything related to K12. The number of Central Ohio K12 users is steadily increasing, and this list will be a good way for us to connect with one another.

    Members can also share their knowledge and experiences about other Central Ohio groups and activities that our children can join to enrich their educational experience, socialization, and those all-important supplemental hours, if you happen to use OHVA. Since we are more localized, we can more effectively arrange outing opportunities, play dates, and form more affiliations with other parents who are close to us by meeting and sharing the K12 curriculum teaching responsibilites. Sometimes we are just here to support each other and that's wonderful, too!

    To Subscribe, visit CentralOhioK12 .

Not everyone in the group will be strict CM/AO users, but we will be suportive of each other and help each other to use CM/AO methods in our homeschooling environment; it will be a place to share ideas and experiences, ask questions, or learn from others.

    We welcome those new and veteran users of CM; but most of us will fall somewhere in the middle of it. Our hope is for this group to also become a place to find other CM homeschoolers in your area and possibly meet for Nature Walks and the like.
