Discovery K12 2019-2020 Announcement

We will be starting our 7th year in serving our free online curriculum for homeschoolers this fall. Our official start date will be September 3rd, 2019. Our school year calendar is now posted, and we have several, new things being launched for the next year!

Please review the following as you prepare to get ready.

Calendar Schedule
The 2019-2020 calendar is now available. We will officially start Day #1 on Tuesday, September 3, 2019. On that day, the Today’s Assignments page will display Day #1, and it will change to the next Day # according to the calendar schedule. You may also go by your own schedule/pace and start at anytime using the Daily Assignments page.

Homeschool Laws
Be sure to review your state’s homeschool laws for any procedures you may need to follow to homeschool in your state. If your state requires notification or forms to file, you will need to do so, according to your state policies.

Curriculum Additions
There are a few curriculum additions being added that will be available starting in September. These include math quizzes and test across all grade levels and Spanish 2 course. Learn more about the 2019-2020 Curriculum.

Platform Improvements
The much needed Course Personalization feature will be launching over the summer. This will be part of the Parent/Teacher Account (PTA) and will support students that need different grade levels for different subjects. We will be releasing more information on this in the coming weeks. We will be fine-tuning and adding some new features to all of the reports within the PTA, including editing permissions for quizzes & tests.

Updating Grade Levels
Please update the grade level for your student(s) for the next year. You can update the grade level inside Student Accounts under the Help menu. If you have a PTA, you will also need to update the grade level by clicking the “Edit Student” link under the My Students area. If you need assistance in changing the grade level in your PTA, please email SUPPORT@DISCOVERYK12.COM

Student ID Cards
We are now shipping photo student ID cards for the 2019-2020 school year. They are currently available for U.S. and Canada only – Order Here

Student Accounts – Free
If you do not have student accounts on our system, please sign up each child in their grade level on our home page. You should receive a confirmation email with login/password within a few minutes. If you don’t receive it, please contact SUPPORT@DISCOVERYK12.COM for assistance.

Parent/Teacher Account – Premium Upgrade
If you don’t already have a Parent/Teacher Account, you may upgrade at any time. It’s for a 12-month period from the date of purchase and your pricing is locked in for any renewal years – LEARN MORE
