HERNDON, Va., Jan. 3, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — K12 Inc. (NYSE: LRN) announced today it has been reauthorized by the Virginia Department of Education (VDOE) to continue as an approved multidivision online learning provider in the state of Virginia.
An oversight committee at the VDOE recently concluded its monitoring review process of K12 in Virginia and the Superintendent of Public Instruction approved K12′s continued status as an authorized provider for school divisions in Virginia.
