I moved to Oregon 4 months ago and began the enrollment process for K-12 3 months before school started. I did my homework and spend nearly 2 hours on the phone asking all of the questions so I would not find myself scrambling at the last minute. I wished for a system with minimum weekly work requirements but also one where he could move faster and graduate earlier if he desired. After doing all the paperwork needed I had him enrolled in Oregon Virtual Academy thru K 12.
About a month later I had not gotten a call to set up his classes so I called and after waiting 40 minutes on the phone left a message for the teacher to call me. She did promptly call back but informed me it was a teacher driven classroom and my son would not be able to move ahead as I was told. I called K 12 back and they had me enroll my son in the Insight Charter. I again sent in the paperwork and after a few days called to check on the status. I again waited 40 minutes for talk to someone and was told that the Charter option was not the one I was looking for and needed to enroll my son in the Insight school of Oregon.
I began that process and asked to have a supervisor call me but no one ever did. I called back a few days later and was informed there was no option through them that my son could move through the material more quickly. By now I had three days till school started and I was in tears. I asked questions repeatedly and was not given proper information. I again asked for a supervisor to call me but they did not. I sent an email and asked that my son be withdrawn from all three of the programs and scrambled to find a local option that would work.
My son is now working through the Salem Keizer school district online and moving at a rapid pace. I am still getting calls from K12 saying they need paperwork for my son and have left another message for a supervisor to call me but I am not holding my breath!
