Does K12 curriculum stand alone? I mean, does it have to be used in conjunction with their online classes or not?

I know NOTHING about homeschooling. My daughter tried to commit suicide on Friday because of bullying at school so obviously I'm never letting her go back there. I need all the help I can get. There is the k12 complete 8th grade curriculum on Ebay right now for $100 and I want to bid on it but I don't know if it stands alone. I don't even know if it's a good one or not. This whole thing is so confusing and I already feel so overwhelmed from all this stuff going on.

Please help me.

I'm so sorry to hear about your daughter and I'm glad you are taking her out. I'm planning to homeschool my son next year and one of the reasons is that he is already being bullied in FIRST grade. I don't know much about online schools, but I haven't really heard anything good about K12. Keep asking around on homeschool sites and I'm sure they can help you find a good program that will work for you and your daughter.

I am so sorry to hear about what happened to your daughter! I am glad she will be homeschooled. I think you will both enjoy it!

K12 has a toll free phone number. (click on "contact us") I believe I would call them and ask your question. Here is a link to their site -

Also, the first thing you need to do is make sure you meet the legal requirements of homeschooling for your state. Here is a link for that -

I hope this helps some. Best wishes!

Thank you.
I've looked up the legal part and we're in Missouri so it's not too bad. We are not going to do k12. I'm glad I have a few months until next school year because I definitely need some time to research this whole thing some more.
